Musician Ted Nugent revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19 and his symptoms were intense.

“I thought I was dying,” the 72-year-old singer said during a Facebook Live video on Monday in a video shot at his Michigan ranch. 

“Everybody told me I should not announce this, but can you hear it, I have had flu symptoms for the last 10 days,” Nugent described.

“I literally could hardly crawl out of bed the last few days, but I did, I crawled,” he continued. Nugent said his symptoms included “body aches” and “a stuffed-up head.”
