Ozzy Osbourne's 29-Year-Old Producer Andrew Watt Tested Positive for Coronavirus
As the corona pandemic continues to affect millions of lives around the world, more and more celebrities are testing positive for the virus. Joining the list of people who have been tested positive for the virus is Andrew Watt, the producer of Ozzy Osbourne.
The past few weeks have taught the world how fragile human life really is. Be it the royals, politicians, or celebrities, no one is safe when it comes to the global corona pandemic that has threatened human life around the world.
As the number of people infected with COVID-19 increases by the hour, celebrities, too, are getting tested. Recently, Ozzy Osbourne's producer, Andrew Watt, revealed that he had tested positive for coronavirus.
DOWN WITH CORONA
In an Instagram post, Watt shared that he had tested positive for COVID-19. According to him, he thought that initially, he was pretty sure that he hadn't contracted the virus.
12 days ago, early morning of March 6th, I started feeling like I was hit by a bus.
Watt went on to share that his doctor did see him at his home but he said that it was a case of flu. Since he hadn't left the country and only went to his studio, the possibility of him having corona was also ruled out.
"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... none of them even had a sniffle..."
Although the producer took medicine to ease his symptoms, the fever and chills wouldn't subside. Slowly, he started to become delusional and had a dry cough.
The federal regulations did not allow for him to get tested for COVID-19. After begging and pleading to be tested, he was given a chest X-ray which showed that he had viral pneumonia.

Even then, Watt wasn't tested. Finally, a private doctor tested him and the results showed that he had in fact been infected with COVID-19. His symptoms have gotten better ever since but he mentioned in the post that he still has trouble breathing.
Watt urged his fans to take the pandemic seriously. Even though he is a healthy individual, he still contracted the disease and his health suffered a lot.
Other celebrities who have contracted the virus include Kevin Durant, Idris Elba, Kristofer Hivju, Olga Kurylenko, Tom Hanks, and Rita Wilson. Prince Albert II of Monaco and Sophie Gregoire Trudeau also tested positive for corona.
