During a Snapchat Q&A, Porter said he believes COVID-19 is being used for “population control” and that the dangers of the virus are being exaggerated. Clevis Murray of The Athletic shared some of the 22-year-old’s remarks.

Bucs TE Cameron Brate reveals he had coronavirus

  Bucs TE Cameron Brate reveals he had coronavirus Brate said he is fully recovered from COVID-19 and encouraged people to donate plasma to help fight the virus in others who contract it. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Cameron Brate (@cambamgram) on Jul 29, 2020 at 6:13am PDT What does that have to do with Brady? Last month, Brady and several Buccaneers teammates got together for workouts despite the NFLPA’s medical director, Dr. Thom Mayer, advising players against it. Brady and his teammates continued to work out together, and Brady posted a quote on Instagram that appeared to be a response to Mayer’s advice.

Porter also claimed he has never received a vaccine in his life. Murray noted that the University of Missouri, where Porter played college ball, requires all students to be up to date on certain immunizations. However, there are medical and religious waivers.

Many professional athletes have advocated for wearing masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and some MLB players have even worn face coverings while playing. It’s safe to assume Porter will not be following their lead when the NBA season resumes in Orlando.

Porter arrived at the NBA bubble later than some of his teammates, though there has not been confirmation that he tested positive for the coronavirus.
