Andrea Bocelli is the latest star on a long list of celebrities who have tested positive for COVID-19.
In a video shared, the opera singer, 61, confirmed to a group of journalists that both he and his family had experienced the novel coronavirus.
“My whole family was contaminated,” he said in an English translation. “We all had a fever – though thankfully not high ones – with sneezing and coughing.”
He continued, “I had to cancel many concerts… It was like living a nightmare because I felt like I was no longer in control of things. I was hoping to wake up at any moment.”
Bocelli reportedly tested positive for the virus in early March.
