Orlando Magic guard Evan Fournier said that civilians stole water bottles delivered to his house amid the panic over the coronavirus outbreak. Fournier revealed via tweet on Sunday morning that some folks had gone inside his gate to taken multiple packs of water.
People are so scared that they stole the 4 packs of water that was delivered to our house yesterday, INSIDE the gate. Sad

As of Sunday morning, there have been 115 confirmed positive cases of coronavirus in Florida. Orlando-area theme parks Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando are closed down temporarily in the wake of the outbreak.
Earlier this week, Fournier offered some support for his fellow Frenchman Rudy Gobert. Gobert was facing criticism for carelessly joking around the Utah Jazz facilities before testing positive for coronavirus. It prompted the NBA to immediately halt the regular season.
On Saturday, Fournier retweeted and commented this enjoyable video of monkeys taking an appropriate amount of toilet paper. It’s a lesson we could all learn during these times of panic.

Fournier was traded to Orlando from the Denver Nuggets in June 2014 in exchange for Arron Affalo. In July 2016, he re-signed for five-years, $85 million. He’s averaged a steady 16.0 points per game over his six seasons with the Magic. That includes a career-high 18.8 points per game this season on 40.6% three-point shooting. He started all 61 games he suited up for Orlando (30-35)—currently in the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference at the time of league suspension.
