Katrina Adams: I was Tested Positive in March

Katrina Adams, Chairperson of the US Open and Chairperson of the Fed Cup, has revealed in a post on social media that she tested positive for coronavirus last month and is now doing her part to donate her plasma to help save others.

The former USTA President Adams said in her post, "As I reflect on the meaning of #Easter and the resurrection of Christ, I think about what has transpired in the world of #COVID19. MAny of my friends/acquaintances have lost loved ones...I was lucky.

I was infected early in March, before the NY numbers skyrocketed and panic arose. I had minor symptoms, body aches and an undetected fever that broke during the night. I tested positive and didn’t really suffer. The brighter side is that I then became a candidate to donate my plasma to save the lives of others, as my antibodies are extremely high.

I was infected for a reason and this photo reminds me that good will come from my misfortune. In reality, it was a Blessing that I can now make a difference for someone else🙏🏽 #StayHome #WashYourHands #StayHealthy #KeepYourDistance #HappyEaster 🐰" Adams is the third person in the tennis community to test positive for the virus.

Former Davis Cup captain Patrick McEnroe revealed he had contracted the illness in late March and Brazil's Thiago Seyboth Wild shared his positive test when in late March.
