Wiz Khalifa recently revealed that he has contracted the novel coronavirus
American rapper Wiz Khalifa recently revealed that he has contracted the novel coronavirus.
The 33-year-old rapper tweeted about his diagnosis on Thursday but added that he’s still feeling healthy. “Okay, loved ones….sooo…..Ya boy got covid. No symptoms. Just stay away from me for a lil while,” he wrote.
Khalifa added that, while he’s quarantining, he’ll be focusing his energy on creativity.
“While im in the house I’ll be giving y’all new content, planning raves, and readying this new project,” he tweeted.
It’s not clear if Khalifa has been vaccinated against COVID-19. Experts say there is a slim chance of vaccinated people becoming infected compared to those who have not received the shots, reported People magazine.
Though developing COVID-19 after getting fully vaccinated is rare, it is possible and “expected,” the Centers for Disease Control say, as the vaccines are not 100 percent effective against the virus.
Khalifa is the latest celebrity to contract the virus. In March, country singer, Lauren Alaina, canceled her upcoming show after getting diagnosed with COVID-19.
