Queen guitarist Brian May has tested positive for Covid-19. He contracted the disease after attending a birthday party, which he described as a “wrong decision.”
“Yep. The shocking day finally came for me. The dreaded double red line. And yes – definitely NO sympathy please – it has been a truly horrible few days, but I’m OK. And I will tell the tale,” May wrote on Instagram along with a photo of his test results.
He added, “PLEASE take extra care out there, good folks. This thing is incredibly transmissible. You really do NOT want it messing up YOUR Christmas. With love – Bri.”
In a pair of Instagram videos, the guitarist revealed that he believes he contracted the virus at a birthday party the previous weekend. He added that he’s starting to feel better after two “horrendous” days.
May said he and his wife, Anita, have been “incredibly careful” throughout the pandemic, but they decided to go to a friend’s birthday lunch where May says all of the attendees had gotten their coronavirus vaccine booster and had tested negative for the virus.
“In retrospect, perhaps we made the wrong decision,” May said in one of the videos. “We could have seen him another time, but that’s history now.”
He and Anita both tested positive for the virus last Tuesday. Other attendees at the party have tested positive as well, May said.
