The latest celebrity to test positive for the novel coronavirus is Geto Boys’ Scarface, who revealed his diagnosis on Thursday (March 26) during a livestream with his bandmate Willie D.
The rapper explained that he had been sick for weeks, in-and-out of treatments, but officially got his results on Wednesday night. What started out as an “itch” in the throat, led to Scarface heading to the emergency room, where he was given an IV and antibiotics. After he was discharged, he returned to the ER “even sicker,” and noted that “It started off with pneumonia in both of my lungs and three or four days later my kidneys failed. I’ve been to the point where I felt I was gonna die.”
The Houston native went on to urge viewers to take the virus seriously. “It’s not fake. I’m not all the way out the woods yet.”
“People out there thinking this s— is a game, it ain’t no joke,” he concluded. Watch the full livestream below.
