Ozzy Osbourne Producer Andrew Watt Has Tested Positive For Coronavirus

After Crown The Empire's Brandon Hoover announced yesterday that he had tested positive for coronavirus, producer Andrew Watt has just revealed the same.

The Ozzy Osbourne and Post Malone collaborator spoke of his journey with the illness on social media, writing that he wants to "bring awareness to the severity of what's happening in the world".

Andrew says that he started feeling like he was "hit by a bus" 12 days ago, explaining, "I couldn't move out of my bed for days and started to run a fever. I was seen by a doctor at my house who told me I am positive for the regular flu, and there's no way I could have COVID-19 as I haven't left the country and all I do is go to the studio and go straight home.

“I was put on Tamiflu and constant Tylenol to fight the fever… but the chills, sweats, and fevers did not stop," Andrew continued. "I started to become delusional and then began the dry cough… I immediately rushed to the emergency room and begged to be tested for COVID-19 as this ‘flu’ was not subsiding.

“I was turned down for the test because of federal regulations. I begged and pleaded to be evaluated and finally was given a chest x-ray… the results of which were Viral Pneumonia… but still… No test.

“A private doctor was finally able to test me himself and yesterday afternoon it came back Positive for COVID-19.”
