Karol G took to social media to confirm that she has tested positive for COVID-19.
During an Instagram live watched by more than 100,000, the "Tusa" singer said that she tested positive two or three weeks ago but had not made it public so her parents wouldn't worry. "First of all, thank you to all the people that have reached out to me. I hadn't said anything because my parents are far away and I didn't want them to worry about me," she says.
"Because my new single [Ay DiOs Mío] was coming out, I didn't want coronavirus to be the news. Now that the news is out, my parents are very nervous and if it was under any other circumstance, they'd be here by my side."
