Watt, a Grammy-award winning music producer who has worked with stars like Post Malone, has tested positive for COVID-19, he announced Tuesday.
“To have the mentality ‘I’m young, this can’t affect me’ is just straight-up stupid,” he warned fans.
Music producer Andrew Watt, announced Tuesday that he has tested positive for coronavirus, and shared a distressing story of being put off for tests as he developed pneumonia and ultimately required assistance from an oxygen machine.
“Currently, my fevers have gotten much, much better and I have begun to have somewhat of an appetite again,” 11 days after first being hit hard by the symptoms, “but it is very hard for me to breathe as a result of this pneumonia. I am laid out in bed chugging Gatorade and using an oxygen machine to give my lungs as much relief as possible.” he wrote.
“I am 29 years old. I am a healthy young man and I am going to get through this no matter what,” Watt continued. “I am going to make a full recovery. But there are so many people in my life and in the world that could possibly not get through this due to their age and/or a compromised immune system. This is why I am writing this post. I can’t stress this enough. This is not a joke. Stay inside, stay sanitized. Please stop everything and take care of yourselves and the people you love around you, until we are all through this.
