COVID-19 has taken a toll on the whole world; the music industry is almost completely virtual just like many school systems, mask wearing is mandatory and many states have nightly curfews. There isn’t adequate scientific data that suggests that once the virus is contracted and passed, the host would build up an immunity to the virus. In other words, Jeremih still needs to be careful after battling COVID-19 for weeks-long stay in the ICU from severe complications resulting in ventilator use in the hospital. WQEB 97.3 continues to send prayers and best wishes to Jeremih and his family for a speedy recovery and maintained health.
