Days after the first report surfaced the 33-year-old hitmaker (born Jeremy Felton) was on a ventilator battling a severe case of COVID-19, his family offered an official statement on his condition to CNN.
“His family would like to remind the world that COVID-19 is real and not to be taken lightly,” they said in a statement provided to CNN. “Also, It’s important for people infected to quarantine and let their families and friends know ASAP. There’s no shame in contracting COVID-19, and people that have it need to be responsible and considerate of others.”
“The family believes daily prayers to God. A great team of doctors and nurses is helping him pull through,” they said. ” He’s not out of the woods yet, but progress is being made. The family and friends are praying that he starts breathing on his own soon, and makes a full recovery.”
