Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Johnny Van Zant Reveals He Contracted Covid-19

Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s Johnny Van Zant has revealed that he tested positive for the coronavirus and is in quarantine.

“It’s been one heck of a week. We are all on quarantine around here due to me coming down with the virus first,” the rock band’s frontman said in a video he posted on Facebook. “And I spread it to everybody else. And I had no clue I had it. That’s the scary thing about this virus.”

Van Zant added that he was diagnosed with the disease after receiving the vaccine. He advised that anyone who suffers from a cold, running nose, cough, or feel weak get tested.

“Because I thought there was no way I could have the coronavirus. I had the shots, the Pfizer shots. I take zinc. I still came down with it. But that just 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,” Van Zant said.

The video shows him sharing the news with his fans apparently in good spirits.
