Ted Nugent, who once dismissed Covid-19, tells fans he’s tested positive for it

Rock star Ted Nugent, who once dismissed Covid-19, told fans Monday that he has tested positive for it and “can hardly crawl out of bed” because of aches and pains.

In a video posted to Facebook, Nugent, 72, said he had had “flu symptoms for the last 10 days” and “thought I was dying.”

“I was tested positive today,” Nugent told fans in video that appeared to have been recorded at his Michigan ranch.

“I got a stuffed up head, body aches, oh my god what a pain in the a–. I literally can hardly crawl out of bed, the last few days but I did. I crawled.”

Nugent appeared to say he will follow orders to remain in isolation: “I’m homebound, i.e. quarantine.”

Throughout his 8-minute, 50-second video, Nugent used racist language to describe the virus, which had killed more than 570,000 people in the U.S. as of Tuesday morning, according to a running tally by NBC News.

“I was tested positive today,” Nugent told fans in video that appeared to have been recorded at his Michigan ranch.

Just four months ago, Nugent doubted that the coronavirus even existed, calling it a “scamming pandemic” and vowing not to take any vaccine.

“It’s not a real pandemic and that’s not a real vaccine. I’m sorry, I ain’t taking no vaccine,” Nugent told fans in a video on Christmas Day.

“You come at me with a needle and I will be in fear of my life,” he said. “You know what I’ll do if you come at me with a needle: ‘Hi, I’m from the government, this needle’s good for you.’ F— you.”
