Tool’s Maynard James Keenan Says He Contracted COVID-19 Twice

During an interview with “Strombo” on Apple Music Hits, Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A Perfect Circle, etc.) revealed that he ended up contracting COVID-19 twice. The frontman previously said that he had the disease in February 2020 and has since confirmed that he had it again in “mid-November and ended up in the ER on December 1.” He also added:

“Ugly, ugly. Couldn’t breathe. I could barely put two words together without going into a coughing fit that, you know? It ended up kind of also progressing into pneumonia. So, if I stayed in the hospital, they said, ‘Okay, we can keep you here, but you’re fighting 12 other people for a bed and a ventilator we don’t have, so what do you want to do?’ I’m like, ‘Well, I need to breathe and I need to sleep.’ So, you’re just treating symptoms at that point. There’s nothing you can do other than treat the symptom, so for a real cough medicine, not the crap over-the-counter and then like an inhaler, and some antibiotics to fight the pneumonia and strap the fuck in.”
