American rapper, Meek Mill thinks he may have contracted the deadly virus even as early as at Christmas time, as he was “extremely sick.”
On Tuesday, the artist revealed via a tweet that he was extremely sick with flu-like symptoms during the festive period. But although he never got a detailed diagnosis from doctors, he thinks he may have been battling with COVID-19.
Taking to his Twitter account, Mill said: “I was extremely sick in December around christmas time with flu like symptoms… everyday I said to myself a older person cannot survive this! I lost like 15 pounds and could barely move! I never been that sick.. a doctor never told me what it was.”

Sadly, several celebrities have diagnosed positive for the virus since it started to spread out of Wuhan, China, where it originated from at the beginning of the year. Meanwhile, some older stars have died as a result of complications from the virus.
Among the big-name stars that have the virus are Idris Elba and his wife Sabrina. Both tested positive which prompted Elba to recently say: “My wife and I felt like it was the right thing to do, to share it with you guys.” Although, he went on to assure the fans and public that he is fine. “Right now, though, I am feeling okay. Woke up this morning, didn’t have any symptoms. My voice is a little tired … checking my fever twice a day. Feel good, feel okay. Been doing a lot of reading about it. You know, asymptomatic is what comes up,” he said.
Also, Hollywood artist, Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson had revealed earlier this month that they both tested positive for the virus. The duo also seems to be pulling through now as Hanks stressed the importance of isolation.
The 63-year-old actor tweeted: “Hey, folks. Two weeks after our first symptoms, and we feel better. Sheltering in place works like this: You don’t give it to anyone – You don’t get it from anyone. Common sense, no? Going to take awhile, but if we take care of each other, help where we can, and give up some comforts…this, too, shall pass. We can figure this out. Hanx.”
Right now, it’s not yet revealed or confirmed whether Meek Mill has tested positive for coronavirus or not.
