Two of the biggest Brazilian CS:GO stars Marcelo "coldzera" David and Fernando "fer" Alvarenga were struck down with misfortune on the same day as one tested positive for Coronavirus while the other escaped unhurt from a tragic car accident which took place in Rio de Janeiro.
Coldzera Tests Positive For COVID-19
The 26-year-old Brazilian rifler who joined FaZe Clan in September last year announced earlier today via an Instagram story that he had tested positive for coronavirus. The announcement was made in Brazilian which roughly translates to “Yeah, Corona you got me.”
Coldzera made the announcement a few hours back after FaZe Clan won their match against OG in the currently ongoing IEM Beijing 2020 where he put up a great performance for the side with an overall rating of 1.16 and a K-D difference of +11.
Taking a look at his performance it did not seem as if Coldzera was suffering in any way despite FaZe Clan played a considerably long series against OG. No official statement has been made by FaZe Clan so far concerning this issue which means the organization plans on continuing competing in the tournament.
A few fans showed concern that Coldzera might have infected other Brazilian players like Lucas “LUCAS1” Teles, Henrique "HEN1" Teles, Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe, and Wilton "zews" Prado, as he had celebrated his birthday with them just a week back.
Fer Escapes Unhurt From A Car Accident
Former MIBR rifler Fernando "fer" Alvarenga was involved in a tragic car accident yesterday on 6th November as photos of the incident surfaced online. The reason behind the crash is still unknown however the Brazilian revealed that he and everyone else were unhurt and safe.
The same cannot be said about his prized Porsche however as the car seemed to be totaled and will certainly need a long visit to the mechanic. A series of posts made via his Instagram account shows him driving on the road followed by a few pictures of the car crashed against a pole after having broken through a fence.
Fer quickly took to Twitter to thanks everyone for the good wishes while joking that now that his car was in the garage he would have to Uber around. On a more emotional not he stated that “It is quite scary how many people hope for the disgrace of others. Instead of envying the other, use motivation to conquer your things. The day you are happy for the success of the other, your life will be much lighter.”
Since being removed from MIBR’s active lineup Fer has been on the bench as others wait to see what the 28-year-old plans for the future.
