The country singer and songwriter took to social media to reveal that he has tested positive for Coronavirus. On April 11, he shared this: “This photo was taken at 9 am on March 13th when my wife took me to our local hospital ER due to chest pains, fever, and pre-stroke blood pressure levels.” He said that he had felt ill since March and that the doctor who treated Simpson during his visit refused to test him for coronavirus because the singer allegedly did not meet the testing criteria. “Almost one month later on April 6th my wife and I were both tested after finally finding a free drive-thru testing facility outside a National Guard depot. Yesterday on Friday, April 10th, after almost one month without any symptoms, I received a call from the Nashville CDC stating that my test resulted in a positive detection for Covid-19. My wife (who has been by my side since Europe) tested negative,” Simpson added.
