According to several media reports, Gayle was one of the members who attended the party Bolt hosted on his 34th birthday. However, the left-handed batsman has tested negative twice for Covid-19 post the incident and will be leaving for the UAE to join his Kings XI Punjab teammates ahead of the IPL season starting September 19.
“Couple days ago. 1st COVID-19 test…Before travel I need 2 negative test,” Gayle’s Instagram story said. In another post, he wrote, “The last one went a bit too far in my nose. Phew. Result was negative.”
“I’m going to stay home for 2020… not gonna travel again…nah sah! Tan a mi yard!! Keep the change! Excuse me! (sic)” he added.
Meanwhile, Bolt, who has been tested positive for Covid-19, posted a video on social media on Monday saying he is self-isolating himself at his home, even though he is not showing any symptoms at the moment.
“Good morning everybody I’m confirmed of Covid-19. I did a test on Saturday,” Bolt said. “Trying to be responsible so I’m going to stay in and stay away from my friends. And also, I am having no symptoms, so I am going to quarantine myself. And will wait and see what is the protocol and how should I go about quarantining myself, from the ministry of health.”
“Just to be safe, I have quarantined myself, and just to take it easy. Be safe over there. Alright, cool,” he added.
Stay Safe my ppl 🙏🏿 https://t.co/ebwJFF5Ka9
