Christian quarterback Drew Brees and his wife, Brittany, will donate $5 million to COVID-19 relief efforts in Louisiana.

“Brittany and I are committing $5,000,000 to the State of Louisiana in 2020,” said Brees on Instagram.

The Breeses have been affected by the virus, as their church was forced to close its physical doors and move online.

Faithwire reports on Lousiana’s COVID-19 status:

In Louisiana, there are now more than 2,300 confirmed cases of the coronavirus, and nearly 1,000 of them are in New Orleans. At least 83 people have died from the virus.

Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) said Tuesday, “It is still impossible to know exactly how long the COVID-19 pandemic will impact Louisiana, but what we do know is that we have more cases per capita than ever state, except New York and Washington.”
