Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor issues update on Covid diagnosis

Several days after revealing that he had tested positive for COVID-19 and was "very, very sick," Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has provided an update on his recovery. His video message can be viewed below, while his remarks are as follows:

"Hey, everbody, just wanted to give you an update. First of all I hope everybody's well out there. Second, I am out of the woods. I'm still positive, but the fever's gone, aches are gone, I'm sweating everything out. I'm still congested, but I'm slowly but surely making my way... shouldn't be too much longer before I test negative, so, I mean that's great.

"I wanted to say thank very much to everyone who sent their best wishes and to all my family and friends who reached out. You have no idea how much that means to me.

"I also want to say that because I was vaccinated, I truly believe that is what helped me get over the brink. I mean it was the worst I've ever been sick in my life. Had I not been vaccinated I shudder to think how bad it would have been. But because I had that extra little bit of protection, it definitely helped me get through it. So go, go, go. If you're still on the fence, I'm telling you right now it's the best thing you can do for yourself.

"Counting the days down and hopefully I will see you guys soon. Take of yourselves, stay safe."
