David and Victoria Beckham had apparently caught Covid-19 while partying in L.A., California, earlier in March 2020. According to reports, the football legend and renowned designer were rumoured to be “super spreaders” after their staff also caught the virus following the celeb duo’s trip to L.A.
After a busy schedule of travelling around the globe with their children during this period, the celebrity couple landed in L.A. on 11th March in order to be present for the launch of David’s new football team, Inter Miami, in Florida. A source said that their social interactions during the month of March were “an absolute nightmare scenario.”
The inside source spoke to The Sun and explained exactly what David, 45, and Victoria, 46, were up to right before contacting the virus: “They attended a couple of swanky networking events as David had promotional duties, and were shaking hands and kissing fans and various club dignitaries.”
David is said to have started feeling unwell soon after his trip to L.A., while his wife also later developed a sore throat and fever. By 19th March, the Beckham family, excluding their eldest son Brooklyn, were back in their estate in Cotswolds, England, where they went into lockdown together.
The insider also went onto claim that several of the Beckhams’ team members, including drivers, bodyguards and PAs, also fell ill. Following this, Victoria is said to have “really panicked” which led to the entire family being quarantined for more than the required two week period. “She was utterly petrified they might be super-spreaders, and did all she could to minimise all future risk,” explained the source.

The couple is said to have checked in regularly with their team and even sent care packages to two staff members who were badly affected.
The Beckhams’ eventually made a full recovery before travelling to Greece and Italy on holiday. Prior to this luxury holiday, the couple underwent swab and antibody tests to ensure they no longer had the virus.
