Former professional soccer player David Beckham is worried over the possibility of having transmitted COVID-19 to employees, friends, family and others after extensive traveling. He and his wife, Victoria Beckham, had contracted the virus in March while attending several parties and events in Los Angeles.

According to the UK tabloid The Sun, the Beckhams most likely contracted the virus back in March when they attended an Inter Miami game at the Los Angeles Football Club, which also had guests such as Gordon Ramsey and their future daughter-in-law, Nicola Peltz. The tabloid reported that the couple went on to return to the United Kingdom to celebrate the birthday of their son, Brooklyn Beckham, and then to Miami for promotional work immediately after. Their symptoms only manifested upon their final return to their Cotswold, England, mansion, with many individuals that work closely with them, also reporting similar conditions.

An anonymous source close to the family told The Sun that, “David started to feel ill and then Victoria developed a sore throat and high temperature. At the same time, several of their team including drivers, bodyguards and assistants fell ill – a couple of them very badly so. Victoria really panicked and made the whole family quarantine rigidly for more than two weeks. She was utterly petrified they might be super-spreaders, and did all she could to minimize all future risk. Not only was she poorly in bed, she was also completely panicked. It was a rough few weeks.”

The family reportedly quarantined themselves in their mansion for the rest of the summer, while canceling several planned trips, events including another of their children’s birthday party and sending care packages to infected staff. After taking swab and antibody tests, the couple resumed traveling and vacationed in both Italy and Greece.
