Taylor said in a Facebook post that he was diagnosed three weeks ago and was in quarantine.
“Maybe I’m a particularly robust 59-year-old guy, I like to think I am, or I was blessed to take a mild Covid-19 shape, but after a week of what I would describe as ‘turbo flu’ , I escaped and I felt good. I have to admit that it didn’t bother me, because I had the chance to really recover, “he wrote.
The musician said that the fear generated by this pandemic is “justified”, but he is confident that “we will overcome”.
“I speak to answer the huge fear of the pandemic, part of it being fully justified, and my heart is with all those who have dealt with real loss and pain. But I want to let you know that he is not always a killer and that we can and will win, ”added Taylor, who added that he is looking forward to returning to the stage.
