Jeremih Still In ICU Battling COVID-19, Family Asks For 'Continued Prayers'

R&B singer Jeremih’s family is sharing an update on his condition after news broke that he had been hospitalized for the coronavirus.

According to a statement from a representative for the family the 33-year-old musician, whose real name is Jeremy Felton, is on a ventilator in an intensive care unit.

“The COVID-19 condition he’s experiencing is rare for a young man his age without underlying conditions,” the representative said. The representative added that Jeremih’s family wanted to remind the world the coronavirus is real and shouldn’t be taken lightly.

“There’s no shame in contracting COVID-19, and people that have it need to be responsible and considerate of others,” the representative said. “Everyone diagnosed with COVID-19 is affected differently. Unfortunately for Jeremih, COVID-19 viciously attacked his body.”

News of his illness last week prompted an outpouring of support from artists like Chance The Rapper, Toni Braxton and Big Sean. On Sunday 50 Cent shared an update regarding his condition on Twitter.

“Thank you for praying for my boy Jeremih,” 50 wrote. “He is responsive today and doing a little better.”

Jeremih’s family echoed those sentiments and said they are “very grateful for everyone who is praying, and we ask for continued prayers.”

“A great team of doctors and nurses is helping him pull through,” they said. “He’s not out of the woods yet, but progress is being made. The family and friends are praying that he starts breathing on his own soon, and makes a full recovery.”
