Slim Thug Tests Positive for Coronavirus
Slim Thug is on the road to recovery after testing positive for the coronavirus back in March.
On Saturday (April 4), Black Enterprise published an interview with the Houston rapper where he detailed his recovery from the fatal virus. Slim says he was prescribed hydroxychloroquine and zinc by his doctor. He has been supplementing that with additional immune building substances.
“I’ve been on a lot of herbs,” Thug says. Namely, “oregano oil, black seed oil, spirulina, turmeric tea.”
He believes he was fortunate. “It didn’t hit me as hard as it hit a lot of other folks,” he added.
Thug says, nearly two weeks after his diagnoses, he almost feels back to normal.

Slim Thug says he's tested positive for the coronavirus.
On Tuesday (March 24), the Houston rapper used an Instagram video to reveal that he'd received a positive result after being tested for COVID-19, which is the technical term for coronavirus. In the clip, Thug warns others to take the pandemic seriously.
"So check this out. No games being played, alright? The other day, I got tested for the coronavirus yesterday and it came back positive," the rapper says in the video. "As careful as I’ve been, self-quarantining, staying home–I might have did... Went got something to eat or something or did some stuff like that. Simple stuff like that, nothing crazy. Stayed in my truck had mask, gloves, everything on and my test came back positive so. Y’all gotta take this stuff serious. Sit home, self-quarantine, do not come outside for however long they saying. If you have symptoms, you need to go get checked out or whatever. I’m good, I feel good. I don’t got no problems right now. The other day I had a slight fever and a cough; I feel better now. I have no fever or nothing like that so I feel like I’m good. But y’all better take it serious, it’s real out here. Coronavirus."
Just last week, Thug shared a video from his home practicing social distancing, but clearly it wasn't enough. Slim Thug's fellow rapper Casanova just issued an apology on Monday (March 23) for going outside during the pandemic and stressed to his followers why staying indoors is more important than ever.
