Jeremih on December 16, stopped by on the Sway in the Morning show where he opened up about his near death experience with Covid-19 after having successfully spent weeks in the hospital battling the pandemic. The singer described himself as a walking testimony to those who still doubt the realness of the pandemic.
“What I can say is, man, it definitely is real,” Jeremih said. “I didn’t take it for granted. And truth be told, this was kinda like … I’m a living, walking testimony. To let y’all know, I was really down bad for the last month and a half. While I was in there, you know, I don’t even remember the day I went in. That’s how messed up I was.”
“I had the tube down my throat for about a week and a half,” he said. “I was really, like, in a dream and I ain’t gonna lie, I woke up about two times and all I remember is just seeing a white light … What I ended up having—and I don’t mind sharing it because now, you know, I’m here—it was called a [multisystem] inflammatory syndrome. MIS. Which is a rare case of, you know, cause and effect of [COVID-19]. My whole insides, all my organs, became inflamed. It was going down.”
The singer went further to explain the the difficulties of multisystem inflammatory syndrome and also revealed that he had to learn how to walk again while recovering.
