The COVID-19 pandemic has once again become the biggest news story in the country following President Donald Trump and several of his aides announcing they tested positive for the virus. This week also saw an R&B singer disclose that he caught COVID as well.
Trey Songz took to Instagram on Monday night to inform his followers about his current medical condition. The “Can’t Help but Wait” vocalist posted a video explaining that he eventually caught the coronavirus after being tested periodically over the last few months.
“Down but not out! Stay safe y’all! Wear your mask. Wash your hands,” wrote Songz in the Instagram caption. The 35-year-old singer confirmed that he will be self-quarantining in his home while he is contagious.
Other celebrities that have confirmed a positive COVID-19 diagnosis include Tom Hanks, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmunds, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Idris Elba, Kevin Durant, Pink, and Scarface. Over 7 million people in the United States have contracted coronavirus and more than 200,000 have died from the respiratory disease. The global total has surpassed 35 million cases.
