Yesterday, Trey Songz went on Instagram to break the news to his 12M+ followers. Songs is the latest celebrity to open up about their positive coronavirus diagnosis. He admitted that he was getting tested periodically due to his active participation in street protests, attending good drives, and more.
“Here with a very important message to let y’all know that I tested positive for COVID-19. Of course I have a very young son at home so I get tested periodically and this time, unfortunately, it came back positive.”
Songz went on to drop some stats, sharing that 7.5M people in the US, alone, have contracted COVID-19 and specifically, 1 out of 1,000 Black people have died from it. He assured his fans that he would “be taking it seriously,” and will self-quarantine until his tests are negative.
“If you come in contact with COVID, please do the same. Don’t be like the president.”
