Yesterday on Friday April 10th, after almost one month without any symptoms, I received a call from the Nashville CDC stating that my test resulted in a positive detection for Covid-19,” Simpson continued. “My wife (who has been by my side since Europe) tested negative.”

The nation singer then set his sights on the each day White House press briefings, which he stated have been uninformed primarily based on what a nurse on the CDC informed him.

“I should also add that the CDC nurse I spoke to yesterday told me that it reacts differently in a case by case basis and the White House briefings and the information they are providing is basically pure speculation causing fear and that the only thing anybody knows is that we don’t really know much yet,” he wrote.


He ended his publish on a lighter word, explaining to his followers that he’s can be self-isolating for the following few days and lambasting Donald Trump’s resolution to place Vice President Mike Pence answerable for the nation’s coronavirus response.
