Ted Nugent reveals that he has tested positive for COVID-19.
Nugent broke the news of his diagnosis in a Facebook Live stream yesterday.
“I’ve got an announcement to make,” he said. “Everybody told me that I should not announce this.
“I have had flu symptoms for the last ten days. I thought I was dying. Just a clusterf*ck.
“I was tested positive today. I got the Chinese sh*t. I’ve got a stuffed up head, body aches. My God, what a pain in the a—s. I literally could hardly crawl out of bed the last few days… So I was officially tested positive for COVID-19 today.”
Nugent also shared a bit more detail about his COVID-19 battle during an episode of his Internet show “Spirit Campfire.”
“I’ve been around a long time — 72.4 years, to be exact — and it’s been quite an adventure… But I have never been so sick in all my life… I could barely crawl out of bed. And I’m not looking for sympathy; I’m just trying to share a medical emergency during a global medical emergency, and what the Nugent tribe, what this guitar player is doing to counterpunch a COVID-19 positive test this afternoon. And it’s gonna be willpower.”
