Corey Taylor gives COVID update: I’m out of the woods”

Slipknot’s Great Big Mouth is on the mend, but he says getting coronavirus was the worst I’ve ever been sick in my life”.

Corey Taylor has given an update on his condition after contracting COVID last week, saying it’s the worst I’ve ever been sick in my life”, but that he’s over the worst. He also said that despite feeling awful, being vaccinated made the experience a far more manageable one than if he had not. 

I am out of the woods,” the Slipknot singer said in a video message on Twitter. I’m still positive, but the fever’s gone, aches are gone, I’m sweating everything out. I’m still congested, but I’m slowly but surely making my way. It shouldn’t be too much longer before I test negative.”

I also wanna say that because I was vaccinated, I truly believe that is what helped me get over the break,” he continued. This is the worst I’ve ever been sick in my life. Had I not been vaccinated, I shudder to think how bad it would have been. But because I had that extra little bit of protection, it definitely helped me get through it. 

If you’re still on the fence, I’m telling you right now it’s the best thing you can do for yourself.”
