“Boy I’ve got a stuff up head, body aches, my God what a pain in the a**. I literally could hardly crawl out of bed the last few days, but I did, I crawled,” he said, referring to the coronavirus as “the Chinese virus attack.” 

The musician, who is a staunch supporter of former President Trump, also said he has not received a COVID-19 vaccine and claimed without evidence that nobody knows what’s in the vaccine. 

“If you can’t even honestly answer our questions of exactly what’s in it and why are you testing it on human beings and forcing it on people in such a short period of time?” he said. 

The announcement from Nugent, 72, comes after he previously called the pandemic a scam and has voiced opposition against public health restrictions intended to curb the spread of the virus. 

In August 2020, Nugent referred to the pandemic as a “leftist scam to destroy” Trump.
