BANG! NEWS – John Taylor feels “blessed” to be recovering from coronavirus. The Duran Duran bassist has revealed he tested positive for the respiratory disease last month but has since recovered and is feeling “okay”.
He revealed on Facebook, “DEAR FRIENDS OF MINE after giving some thought to this, I have decided to share with you that I tested positive with the coronavirus almost three weeks ago.
“Perhaps I am a particularly robust 59-year-old – I like to think I am – or was blessed with getting only a mild case of Covid-19 – but after a week or so of what I would describe as a ‘Turbo-charged Flu’, I came out of it feeling okay (sic)”
The Planet Earth hitmaker admitted he “didn’t mind” being placed in self-isolation because it gave him the opportunity to just focus on his recovery.
He added, “Although I must admit I didn’t mind the quarantine as it gave me the chance to really recover. (sic)”
John hoped that by speaking out about his own experiences, he could ease people’s fears of the disease, and he also sent his sympathies to those who have had to “deal with real loss and pain” as a result of the pandemic.
