AceShowbiz - While tens of millions of Americans have been vaccinated against COVID-19, Wiz Khalifa has become the latest celebrity who caught the virus. The rapper took to Twitter on Wednesday, July 14 to announce that he has tested positive for coronavirus, warning people to keep their distance from him as he enters into quarantine.
"Okay loved ones….sooo…..Ya boy got covid," so the 33-year-old posted on Wednesday night. Assuring that he is okay and asymptomatic, he added, "No symptoms. Just stay away from me for a lil while."
Wiz, whose real name is Cameron Jibril Thomas, went on promising that he will stay productive while he remains in the house. "While im in the house I'll be givin y'all new content, planning raves, and readying this new project," so he teased his fans.
It's unclear if Wiz has got the COVID vaccine, but it has been reported that majority of COVID-19 patients in the U.S. hospitals now are those who have not been vaccinated. Still, there were people who have been vaccinated surfaced with positive test results.
Following Wiz's announcement, people urged him to get the vaccine, if he hasn't got inoculated. "Your lucky if you have no symptoms. Get vaxxed afterwards it will give you that much more protection against it in the future," one person advised him. Another implored, "Get your shot folks please!"
