Cassper Nyovest, the South African musician, announced that he had tested positive for Coronavirus.
Speaking to American radio host Ebro in an interview, the rapper said that while practicing and planning for a boxing match, he contracted the infection. He announced that while they were social distancing and compliant with all the protection guidelines they were told to follow, he contracted the virus.
He just noticed a mild headache, Cassper stated, but figured it was normal before someone who tested positive called to warn him.
“At first, it was just a scary part where we didn’t know what’s going on but we stayed home. And then I started training to prepare for this boxing match.
“The training was so hectic and just at the peak of my fitness, I contracted COVID-19 In a meeting and everybody was social distancing and doing everything that we were told to do.
“Somehow I caught it and if I wasn’t called by the person who tested positive then I wouldn’t have known. I just had a little headache and I thought it was from something else so I went and got tested and I found out I was positive.
“I just had a little headache and I thought it was from something else so I went and got tested and I found out I was positive. I didn’t have all the symptoms and it’s worse than just the flu. That’s how it affected me personally.”
The new father also revealed that he has finished his quarantine period. Cassper added;
“I was isolated for fourteen days. And on the seventh, it was the only day when it got challenging. I had a hectic fever and my body was all over the place. I was hot and cold. Probably seven days later I was back running in the streets. First I was running I could feel that my chest wasn’t okay.”
