Rapper Slim Thug has announced that he has tested positive for coronavirus and urged everybody to take the disease seriously.

"No games being played," Slim Thug said in the video. "As careful as I've been self-quarantined and staying home, I might have gotten something to eat or something or did some stuff like that - simple stuff like that, nothing crazy - stayed in my truck, had masks, gloves, everything on. And my test came back positive."

The rapper continued, "Y'all gotta take this stuff serious. Sit home, self-quarantine, do not come outside for however long they're saying. If you have symptoms, you need to go get checked out or whatever."

He said he took the test after he had a fever and a cough, but those symptoms have now vanished.

"I feel better now," Slim said. "I don't have a fever or nothing like that, so I feel like I'm good, but y'all better take this serious. It's real out here."
