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.”
