Lynyrd Skynyrd Singer Johnny Van Zant Confirms He Is Diagnosed With COVID-19

Lynyrd Skynyrd lead vocalist Johnny Van Zant posted a video on Facebook announcing that he got caught coronavirus after he was vaccinated and advised his fans about being careful during the pandemic.

Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour which included Kid Rock, Hank Williams Jr., Bad Company, the Charlie Daniels Band, 38 Special, Cheap Trick, Blackberry Smoke, Blackfoot, Massive Wagons, and Status Q started on May 4, 2018.

Then, Johnny Van Zant revealed that the band was intended to record one final album on March 19, 2019.  Later, Lynyrd Skynyrd was listed by New York Times Magazine as among the artists whose original recordings were destroyed in 2008 Universal Fire however the situation is still unclear.

While the fans were expecting good news from the band such as a reveal of the date or releasing the final album, Johnny Van Zant shared that he was diagnosed with COVID-19 and talked about his week under the pressure of a deadly virus.

He said that It was a challenging process both for him and his family and he didn’t know how he got the virus which scared him the most about it. He warned his fans about the seriousness of the COVID-19 as showing himself proof. Although he said that he was vaccinated, he didn’t talk about how many days passed after it.

Here’s what he said:

“What a week I’ve had. What a week our family’s had. Well, let me just say, it’s been one heck of a week. We are all on quarantine around here due to me coming down with the virus first. I spread it to everybody else and I had no clue I had it, and that’s the scary thing about this virus, the thing that I would tell anybody is that if you start to feel sick at all: head cold, just weak, nose running, a cough, just a little bit, go get tested because I thought there’s no way I could have the coronavirus. I had the shots, the Pfizer shots, and I take zinc. I take all of that stuff and I still came down with it, but that goes to show you how powerful this virus is. So for those of you who think there is no virus, I’m living proof talking to you that there is.”

As many of you already know I have Covid.. it finally got me. Unfortunately, I have spread it to some of my family but we are all staying locked up until we are better! So y’all stay safe, do your part and always look up! #godsday #lookup
