The rocker took to Facebook to share the news.
“I got an announcement to make,” Nugent explained in a video message, noting that “everybody told me that I shouldn’t announce this.”
“I have had flu symptoms for the last ten days,” he continued. “And I just, I thought I was dying. Just a clusterfuck.”
Nugent went on to explain that he’d visited his doctor, who suggested he be tested for coronavirus. While the rocker initially declined, he eventually rescinded and agreed.
“I was officially tested positive for COVID-19 today,” Nugent declared, also referring to the virus as “Chinese virus attack ‘21” and “the Chinese shit” at various points in the video.
