Singer Sturgill Simpson tests positive for coronavirus
Singer songwriter Sturgill Simpson on Saturday revealed he has tested positive for coronavirus .
The 42-year-old musician led Instagram to reveal his coronavirus diagnosis and also pointed out towards the frustrating attempts he had to go through to get tested.
He began the post by saying that he and his wife were on a two-week tour of Western Europe in late January/early February ... then top to bottom in the southeastern/eastern USA. USA They played shows from mid-February to early March. We played Charleston, SC on March 10th and they disconnected our tour on March 12th and then went home.
The photo I shared on Instagram along the post was taken on March 13, and said: When my wife took me to our local hospital ER due to chest pains, fever, and pre-stroke blood pressure levels.
It did not meet the test criteria, he quoted the doctor as saying that he refused to examine him and said that it was impossible for him to have contracted the virus due to its extreme rarity.
Almost a month later, on April 6, my wife and I were put to the test after finally finding a free driving test center outside a National Guard depot, the 'A Good Look' singer said.
Yesterday, Friday, April 10, after almost a month without any symptoms, I received a call from the Nashville CDC stating that my test resulted in a positive detection of COVID-19. My wife (who has been by my side from Europe) was negative, he added.
All I know is that I first felt symptoms a month ago, but I'm still positive and contagious and now I'm quarantined in the dojo until April 19 and I really wish I followed my wife's advice and put a bath in the floor plans ... live and learn, he continued.

Ok, as they are scarce these days, here are some facts ... We were on tour in western Europe for two weeks in late January/early February ... then we went up and down the southeast/east sand shows from the USA USA From mid-February to early March. We played in Charleston, SC on March 10th and we were disconnected from our tour on March 12th and returned home. This photo was taken at 9 am on March 13 when my wife took me to the emergency room of our local hospital due to chest pain, fever and blood pressure levels before the stroke. I spent an hour listening to a (very condescending) doctor refuse to evaluate me because I did not meet the testing criteria and tell me why it was impossible for me to have contracted the virus due to its extreme rarity and that I was not in western Europe, however, During that same period (which we now know is incorrect) despite the fact that two nurses told me that I was the first person to visit their hospital to request that I be tested. Almost a month later, on April 6, my wife and I were tested after finally finding a free driving test center outside a National Guard depot. Yesterday, Friday, April 10, after nearly a month without any symptoms, I received a call from the Nashville CDC stating that my test resulted in a positive Covid-19 detection. My wife (who has been by my side from Europe) tested negative. I should also add that the CDC nurse I spoke to yesterday told me that she reacts differently on a case-by-case basis and that the White House briefings and the information they provide is basically pure speculation that is scary and the only thing that someone knows is that we really don't know much yet. All I know is that I first felt symptoms a month ago, but I am still positive and contagious and now I am quarantined in the dojo until April 19 and I really wished I had followed my wife's advice and put a bath in the floor plans ... live and learn. But hey, at least our government-appointed task force, led by a man who doesn't believe in science, is against mass testing and now we have a second task force in the works to open the United States again for business. Dick Daddy out.
