Jeremih is out of the ICU after testing positive for COVID-19.
The R&B singer was originally on a ventilator in the ICU after his condition had reportedly grown worse.
“Jeremih has been transferred out of ICU. He will spend the rest of his recovery time in a regular hospital room. The true healing begins. Thank you all for your prayers and wishes,” his family said in a statement.
Previously, Jeremih’s rep spoke about how he was in the intensive care unit of a hospital.
“Jeremih is currently battling severe COVID-19 health complications. He’s in the ICU on a ventilator to help him breathe,” the statement reads. “The COVID-19 condition he’s experiencing is rare for a young man his age without underlying conditions. His family would like to remind the world that COVID-19 is real and not to be taken lightly.”
“Also, It’s important for people infected to quarantine and let their families and friends know ASAP,” his rep continues. “There’s no shame in contracting COVID-19, and people that have it need to be responsible and considerate of others. Everyone diagnosed with COVID-19 is affected differently, Unfortunately for Jeremih, COVID-19 viciously attacked his body.”
“The family is very grateful for everyone who is praying, and we ask for continued prayers,” the rep concludes. “The family believes daily prayers to God. A great team of doctors and nurses is helping him pull through. He’s not out of the woods yet, but progress is being made. The family and friends are praying that he starts breathing on his own soon, and makes a full recovery.”
“Pray for my boy @jeremih he’s not doing good this covid s**t is real 🙏🏿 he’s in ICU in Chicago,” 50 Cent shared on Instagram after the news first broke. Hitmaka also shared another update on Jeremih.
