Rough times for Karl Anthony-Towns.

The Minnesota Timberwolves star was emotional on his recently uploaded video regarding his publicbmessage about the real threat of COVID-19.

KAT’s mother, Jacqueline Cruz, is currently in a state of comatose after she contracted coronavirus.

Apparently, both Towns’ parents tested positive for coronavirus, although his father was already discharged and is currently on a home quarantine.

“I’m keeping the strength up for everybody in my family,” the former 2015 first overall pick said.

“So I made this video so people can understand the severity of this disease is real. This disease needs to not be taken lightly. Please protect your families, your loved ones, your friends, yourself. Practice social distancing. Please don’t be in places with a lot of people. This disease is deadly.”
