Life Sam Smith is sure: ‘I had corona’ Posted on April 18, 2020 2 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Singer Sam Smit says he had corona. This strong suspicion is based on a self-diagnosis, says the 27-year-old British singer. “I haven’t been tested, but I know I’ve had it. I’m just assuming it, because everything I read about the virus indicates it. So yes, I’m sure I had it.” Sam had the symptoms of Covid-19 before the United Kingdom took action against the spread of the virus. Sam’s sister was also ill. They both went into isolation for three weeks to protect the rest of their family. “We have an elderly grandmother, we didn’t want to be at risk.” The artist is now recovering. “When the rest of the country went into lockdown, I scrambled up again. At the beginning I felt the urge to sing, to sing along in the living room with songs by Corinne Bailey Rae and Stevie Wonder, but after a week I wanted no longer sing. ” Sam recently decided to postpone the release of the third album. Initially, the record was supposed to be out on June 5, but that has been postponed to later this year. The title ‘To Die For’ will also be adjusted. Sam does not think it is appropriate to come up with an album during the corona crisis.
