John Prine's Wife Fiona Updates Fans on Country Singer's Health After Hospitalization for COVID-19
On Monday, March 30, 2020, John Prine’s wife, Fiona Whelan Prine, took to social media to give an update on hers and her husband’s coronavirus diagnosis.
On Sunday, John’s family revealed that he was very ill and had caught the coronavirus. The singer-songwriter remains hospitalized.
The star was taken to the hospital last Thursday after experiencing symptoms of the virus. At the time, the singer’s wife had revealed that John “was intubated Saturday evening, and continues to receive care.”
Fiona recovered from COVID-19
In her first tweet, Fiona, his wife, explained that she had “recovered from Covid-19.” The singer’s wife thanked his fans for their support during this trying time.
He needs prayers and love
Asking for love and prayers
She ended her post by urging people to stay at home and wash their hands. A few hours later, Fiona wrote a second tweet to clarify some of the things she said in the first one.
Being isolated from his wife
She also asked the same for people all around the world. The “Hello In There" vocalist, 73, has been isolated from his wife as they both tried to heal from the virus.

Prine’s cancer diagnosis
John is well-known for his influence in folk and country music. In 2013, he was diagnosed with lung cancer and had part of his lung removed.
I have recovered from Covid-19. We are humbled by the outpouring of love for me and John and our precious family. He is stabile. Please continue to send your amazing Love and prayers. Sing his songs. Stay home and wash hands. John loves you. I love you— Fiona Whelan Prine (@FionaPrine) March 30, 2020
Singing despite voice issues
That was his second bout with cancer. The surgeries affected his voice but that didn’t stop the star from making more music and going on tours.
I need to clarify what I mean by “John is stable”. That is not the same as improving. There is no cure for Covid-19. He needs our prayers and love - as do the thousands of others who are critically ill. Stay at home. Wash your hands. We love you.— Fiona Whelan Prine (@FionaPrine) March 30, 2020
His planned tour
Before being diagnosed with COVID-19, John had shows scheduled in May and a summer tour planned. The musician began his recording career with a self-titled debut in 1971.
Over the years he’s won four Grammy awards.
