DJ Jazzy Jeff has been battling a fierce case of pneumonia, and he believes he may have the coronavirus.
“i’m recovering from pneumonia in both of my lungs… I lost my sense of smell and taste, which is a main sign of the virus￼￼￼. I would NOT be here if not for my guardian angel of a wife￼,” he posted on Instagram.
“Pls say a prayer for all the sick…it’s a lot more than you know!”
While the legendary DJ doesn’t appear to have an official diagnosis, he wouldn’t be the first celebrity to have COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, Kevin Durant, Scarface, Slim Thug, and others have all been diagnosed. Afro-jazz saxophonist Manu Dibango died after contracting the coronavirus. According to New York Times, the United States has the highest number of reported infections in the world.
