Andrew Watt, who produced, co-wrote and played guitar on Ozzy Osbourne's new album Ordinary Man, says that he has tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
Watt said he received his test results on Monday (March 16th), after first showing signs that he was ill back on March 6th. He is unsure how he got the virus.
He wrote, “12 days ago . . . I started feeling like I was hit by a bus. I couldn't move out of my bed for days and started to run a fever. I was seen by a doctor at my house who told me I am positive for the regular flu and there's no way I could have COVID-19 as I haven't left the country and all I do is go to the studio and go straight home. I told all my friends I had been working with and anyone close to me that I'm laid out with the flu and quarantined myself . . . none of them even had a sniffle.”
