Wolves' Karl-Anthony Towns says mom in coma with coronavirus

"This disease, it's deadly".

The star player delivered the hard news in a passionate video where he announced that both of his parents came down with flu-like symptoms last week.

Towns Sr. was eventually discharged and remains in mandatory quarantine at home, but Cruz remained hospitalized. "She kept getting worse.and the hospital was doing everything they can". We talked and she felt she turned the corner. We're being positive; I'm being very positive. [Then the doctors] said she went sideways. My first reaction to her was to go seek medical attention immediately. They were just explaining to me that she had to be put on a ventilator... "Every day I always told her how much I love her".

She was placed on a ventilator and into a medically-induced coma.

Towns said medical staff thought his mother was "turning a corner" in her recovery from the virus, and then her condition worsened. "Since that day I haven't been able to talk to her".

After a few days of little-to-no improvement, Towns and his sister told their mother she should get checked for the coronavirus.

In a 2014 interview with the Louisville Courier-Journal when Towns was in college, Cruz described herself as a "loud and rowdy" fan who liked to "stomp my feet and curse a little bit".

"She was feeling great", Towns said in the video.

Towns was visibly upset but said he was staying upbeat for the sake of his mother and his family. And I ain't gonna quit at any time. Neither will my family. Dominican women are strong, I know they are. My mother is the strongest woman I know. Although there was at one point a glimmer of hope that she was improving, things went "sideways".
