Nelly says Kevin Durant's positive coronavirus test is a real REALITY CHECK for the world -- because it proves "nobody's exempt" when it comes to COVID-19.
"Our thoughts and our strengths are with him," the hip-hop star told us in Calabasas ... "Nobodys exempt. We're all the same right now."
He added, "Nobody's bigger than the other right one. I think we're all one at the same time right now."
"It's affecting the world, man, not just the music industry. And, anybody who feels like this is personal, basically got they head in the sand."
Nelly's message echoed Nevada governor Steve Sisolak -- who didn't mince words when addressing the people of the Silver State earlier this week.

"I don't know how to make this any clearer ... this is affecting the lives of our citizens. People are dying."
"Kevin Durant, one of the most fit people in the world, tested positive today. it is incumbent upon the citizens of this state to take this seriously."
