DJ Jazzy Jeff took to social media this week to reveal that he may have coronavirus as he struggles with a serious bout of pneumonia.

"I'm recovering from pneumonia in both my lungs...I lost my sense of smell and taste which is a main sign of the virus," he wrote via Instagram stories. "I would NOT be here if not for my guardian angel for a wife!"

He went on to urge fans to "Please take this serious...it does not care who you are...what you do or what your plans are. Stay safe."

The deejay is among a slew of other who have the virus, as Idris Elba, producer Watt, Charlotte Lawrence Kevin Durant, Slim Thug and Scarface are just a few who have tested positive for COVID-19.
