Hollywood star Matt Damon has revealed that his eldest daughter Alexis had contracted the novel coronavirus in New York City while the rest of Damon's family was quarantined in Ireland. He also mentioned that she recovered from the illness and got through it fine.

The actor, who starred in the 2011 movie Contagion which revolves around a pandemic situation similar to the current state of the world, is currently stuck in the town of Dalkey, Ireland, where he was shooting for a movie whose production was halted as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. In an interview with a local radio show, SPIN 1038 Fully Charged, Matt Damon opened up about Alexis being infected with coronavirus early on. "I'm in the middle of a movie that I shot the first half in France and we were moving to Ireland and kind of right when we arrived in Ireland, the movie was shut down…Our oldest daughter is in college. Obviously that's been shut down, but she's in New York City. She had Covid really early on along with her roommates and got through it fine," the actor stated.

Matt, who has three other children, further added, "I shouldn't say our whole family's together. Of our four kids we've got the three younger ones and our oldest one, we'll reunite with her at the end of the month. But everybody's okay."
