Souza gets the COVID

Jacare Souza tested positive for coronavirus and had to drop out of UFC 249:

Two of Souza's cornermen also tested positive for coronavirus.  It will be interesting to see over the next few weeks if anyone else from that UFC card tests positive for coronavirus.  There were 22 other fighters who competed on the card (per Wikipedia).  Souza had checked into a hotel in Jacksonville where many of the other fighters were staying, so you had a situation where, potentially, the virus could spread among a specific group of people.
