AceShowbiz – Christopher Cross has a message to those who thinks coronavirus is a “hoax.” Revealing that he himself is currently battling COVID-19, the “Sailing” hitmaker warned people to not take this global pandemic lightly.
In an Instagram post uploaded on Friday, March 3, the 68-year-old singer-songwriter apologized to his “dear friends” because he was “among the growing number of Americans who tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.” He added, “I’m not in the habit of discussing medical issues on social media, but I do so in hope this will help other people to understand how serious and how contagious this illness is.”
The “Arthur’s Theme” singer went on to explain that “although [he was] fortunate enough to be cared for at home, this is possibly the worst illness [he has] ever had.” He then sent stern warning, saying, “For those of you who still do not believe the COVID-19 virus is real, or think it is a ‘hoax’ or part of some conspiracy, my advice to you is to understand right now that this is a deadly illness spreading like wildfire throughout the world. “
The member of Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band then asked people to “make every attempt to stall the spread of this virus by 1) staying home – the only way we can stop the spread right now is by self-quarantine 2) washing your hands as many times a day as you can and don’t touch your face and 3) follow the SCIENCE.”
Cross also urged fans to read the guidelines posted on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to “educate yourself on the facts and protect your loved ones.” The Grammy winner concluded his statement by saying, “Last but never least: wherever you are in the world, let’s all be kind to one another. Only if we work together can we defeat COVID-19. Love, Christopher.”
