He added: “Please don’t be afraid!!! It’s the flu not the plague. I’ve have been quarantined for a week and will for another week. And when I feel better I’ll get tested again to make sure I’m free of this nasty virus.

“Please help out each other. This will be over soon… with the help of every American!”

Bryan is the latest member of the musical community to announce that he has coronavirus. This week, Andrew Watt, songwriter for Post Malone and Cardi B, revealed he has the virus, alongside a member of the Australian heavy rock band Ocean Grove.

Yesterday, New Orleans DJ Black N Mild died due to coronavirus after contracting the virus earlier in the week, while last week Universal Music Chairman and CEO Lucian Grainge was reportedly hospitalised after testing positive for coronavirus.
