Pop music legend Madonna has announced that she has tested positive for novel coronavirus (COVID-19) antibodies.
And as research continues into ongoing pandemic, it’s somewhat confusing as to what this actually means for her. The Center for Disease Control currently says that having antibodies solely means that you were exposed to the virus. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you are immune to the virus.
So for now, Madonna says she will be laying low for the time being. However, she does plan to get outside for a little while.
“I took a test the other day, and I found out that I have the antibodies,” Madonna said in an Instagram video on Thursday (April 30.) “So tomorrow I’m just going to go for a long drive in the car, I’m going to roll down the window and I’m going to breathe in the COVID-19 air. Yup. I hope the sun is shining.”
Madonna concluded the video by saying, “here’s the good news, tomorrow’s another day and I’m going to wake up and I’m going to feel differently.”
Madonna is one of countless artists whose touring plans for 2020 are currently up in the air. But it’s evident that she will do anything in her power to put this pandemic behind all of us. According to People magazine, she will be teaming up with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation “to find a drug that will prevent or treat COVID-19.”
