Sam Smith Claims He Contracted Coronavirus Weeks Before U.K. Lockdown Started
Sam Smith claims to have contracted the coronavirus two weeks before the U.K. lockdown began.
The pop star’s sister exhibited symptoms and in a new interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music the Stay With Me singer, who refuses to adhere to gender norms, insists they caught the infection – even though Sam was never tested.
“I know I have it, 100 per cent have it,” Smith explains. “I’m just going to assume that I did because everything I’ve read completely pointed to that.
“I think I definitely had it. And then as soon as I had it, my sister five days after me started getting the same symptoms who’s living with me (sic).”
The pair then self-isolated for three weeks to make sure they were clear of the virus.
“It was clear,” Sam adds. “Because I’ve got an older nan (grandmother) and stuff, so we didn’t want to risk anything. I got it about two weeks before the U.K. really hit. Well, I think I got it. I don’t 100 per cent know, but I got it and then as everyone was kind of really on lock down, that’s when I got over it, luckily.”
