Ice-T opened up on how he felt about the situation as he added that he took to social media to share awareness with fans. The TV star who doubles as a rapper told Fallon:

"There are still non-believers. I've made it through so much in my life; I don't want to die because of this — especially with a new daughter. I'm aware, and I'm concerned, and I'm cautious."


People reports that after Steve was diagnosed with COVID-19, his star daughter took to Instagram where she announced the sad news to fans. Coco let fans know that her “tough as an ox” dad needed their prayers to survive the pandemic.
