Aaron Rodgers Describes Panicked Escape From Peru Due To Coronavirus

Former Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers was stuck in a dangerous situation in Peru while trying to escape the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

The coronavirus pandemic has society as a whole on pause as health experts both look for a cure and do all they can to try and slow the spread of the disease, and NFL teams haven’t been immune to the effects of it all.

Rodgers found himself moving through the chaos, in an attempt to escape the risk of exposure to COVID-19.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback was recently in Peru with a small travel party and was desperately trying to return to the United States amid the outbreak, making it out only minutes before the airport was completely shut down. And in the process, the former Super Bowl MVP found himself trapped dangerously squeezed inside a facility with barely any room to move.

“Have you seen the movie Argo?,” Rodgers told a radio show with Pat McAfee and former Packers teammate A.J. Hawk. “The scene at the end where they’re racing to the airport. Nobody was chasing us, thankfully, or holding us. We didn’t have to speak Farsi to get back into the country, but there were some moments where we worried we were not going to get out…It was absolute pandemonium at the airport. … When we rolled up to the airport at, like, seven in the morning, it was wall-to-wall people, and you couldn’t move. I was thinking, ‘This isn’t very safe.’ Not many masks on, and there was definitely a panic in the air.”

Health experts warn that individuals stay away from large groups of people and at least six feet away from others when there is a need to leave home, so you can easily understand Rodgers’ fears. The good news is there have been no reports of either the 36-year-old himself or anyone he was with having contracted the virus, and Rodgers has been practicing self-quarantine at home in Malibu, California since his return on March 18.
