For the second time in a month, Bryan Adams says he has been tested positive for COVID-19, announcing the news in an Instagram post published Thursday, saying he was on his way to the hospital as a result.
“Here I am, just arrived in Milan, and I’ve been tested positive for the second time in a month for Covid. So it’s off to the hospital for me. Thank you for all your support,” “Please Forgive Me” singer, 60 , wrote Friday in an Instagram caption.
In the accompanying photo series, the musician can be seen standing in Milan airport and wearing a face mask and then inside an Italian ambulance.
Adams had arrived in Italy to attend promotional events for the Pirelli 2022 calendar, CNN reports.

The news of his latest diagnosis comes just weeks after Adams withdrew from a scheduled appearance at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony after being tested positive for coronavirus in October.
His rep told Billboard at the time of the diagnosis that Adams was “fully vaccinated and no symptoms at all.”
Keith Urban eventually took over Adams’ place in the show, which was meant to honor Tina Turner.
Speaking on CNN’s New day On Friday, Dr. Anthony Fauci that there have been cases where those who are weakened with the immune system “may have the virus by”, resulting in a positive text several weeks after an initial positive.
Fauci, however, was quick to add that he is not aware of Adams’ case in particular: “I know nothing about his medical condition, so I’m really very reluctant to make any comments about it.”

Adams came under fire last year for an altercation on social media about coronavirus, which he posted in an Instagram caption below a video of himself performing his 1983 song “Cut Like a Knife” on guitar while isolating himself at home.
“Tonight was supposed to be the beginning of a lease with concerts at @royalalberthall, but thanks to some f — ing bat eating, sale of wet market animals, viruses making greedy bastards, the whole world is now put on hold, not to name the thousands who have suffered or died from this virus, “Adams wrote in the May 2020 captioned editorial, referring to several unproven, problematic theories about how COVID-19 started, including the claim that it originated from a person who ate a bat or an animal bitten by a bat. “My message to them other than ‘thank you very much’ is to become vegan.”
At the time, Adams was scheduled for a three-night stay at the Royal Albert Hall in London, which was pushed back to 2021 due to the pandemic.

Later that month, Adams posted another video on Instagram, this time going back in tone.
“Sorry for everything that was offended [sic] to my post yesterday, “he wrote.” No apology, I just wanted a quarrel that the horrific animal cruelty in these wet markets is the possible source of the virus, and promoting veganism. I have love for all people and my thoughts go out to all those involved in this pandemic around the world. “
