Canadian rock singer Bryan Adams announced on Thursday that he had tested positive for COVID-19 for the second time within a month.
“Here I am, just arrived in Milano, and I’ve tested positive for the second time in a month for Covid. So it’s off to the hospital for me. Thanks for all your support #sohappyithurts,” Adams wrote in a post on Instagram, referring to the title of his forthcoming album set to be released next spring.
The post showed several photos of him, including one of him inside an ambulance vehicle.
Bryans had previously announced in an Instagram post on Oct. 31 that he had been infected, though he said he experienced no symptoms.
“Happy Halloween and thanks for all the well wishes. Please don’t worry, yes I had the Covid and thankfully had no symptoms. Bunny my daughter had it too, with bit of a sore throat for night. But we’re good, and it has to be said: #sohappyithurts,” he wrote at the time.
According to The Los Angeles Times, Adams is vaccinated. The newspaper noted that Jon Bon Jovi, the frontman for rock group Bon Jovi, had also had a breakthrough case of COVID-19.
Adams, who is also a photographer, was slated on Sunday and Monday to attend several press events regarding the 2022 Pirelli calendar that he shot, according to the Associated Press.
Despite the fact that vaccines are becoming more widely available for countries, though not nearly enough in certain parts of the world, breakthrough cases have become a somewhat normalized occurrence within the COVID-19 pandemic.
Celebrities and lawmakers have notably reported their own breakthrough cases, COVID-19 cases that occur in people who are still fully vaccinated. However, many have touted that the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccine, saying that their symptoms would be much worse if they had not been fully vaccinated.
