J Balvin Reveals He Had Coronavirus: 'I Got It Bad'

J Balvin has revealed that he recently contracted the novel coronavirus and he’s still in recovery mode.

The 35-year-old “Mi Gente” singer made the revelation while giving an acceptance speech during the 2020 Premios Juventud event on Thursday (August 13).

“At this moment, I’m just getting better from COVID-19. These have been very difficult days, very complicated. Sometimes we won’t think that we’ll get it, but I got it and I got it bad,” he said in Spanish.

The message was recorded from Colombia, where Balvin currently is staying.

“My message to those that follow me, young fans and people in general is to take care. This isn’t a joke. The virus is real and it’s dangerous,” he added.

There have been 422,519 cases of COVID-19 in Colombia and 76,805 of those cases were just in the last week.
