Scarface (Brad Jordan), best known as a member of the Houston hip hop group, Geto Boys, has revealed that he tested positive for coronavirus.
According to Scarface, his illness started with a mild sore throat but he was hospitalized when the symptoms became more severe. He said he had pneumonia, kidney failure, and a high fever. He also had other common symptoms, such as a dry cough, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Scarface: ‘I felt like I was going to die’
He did not confirm that he had COVID-19 until he received positive coronavirus test results late on Wednesday, according to Rollingstone.
“I been to the point where I felt like I was going to die,” Scarface said.
He said the respiratory problems due to pneumonia proved the most challenging to his health because he had asthma. Scarface told Willie D that he suffered extreme breathing difficulties and it felt like there was “an elephant sitting on my chest.”
Noting that he didn’t travel recently, he said he couldn’t tell where he contracted the virus.
He then warned people to take coronavirus seriously and that no one should play games with their lives by not taking it seriously.
He said he was still in quarantine but he was recovering and feeling much better. He added that he was looking forward to the end of his quarantine because he wanted to have fun after surviving the ordeal.
“I’m finna go f**k**g live now, man! Like skydiving and s**t, I’m gonna go do that. We’ll go on a safari trip.”
