I would have died from COVID if I hadn’t been vaccinated – Billie Eilish
American singer-songwriter, Billie Eilish has recounted how she almost died from a “horrible” case of COVID-19 over the summer.
The Grammy-winning singer shared her experience on SiriusXM’s “The Howard Stern Show”, adding that she “would have died” if she hadn’t been vaccinated.
Eilish also said she’s still experiencing long-term COVID symptoms. She said;
“I think if I weren’t vaccinated, I would have died, because it was bad.
“When I say it was bad, I more just mean that it felt horrible. But really, in the scheme of COVID, it was not bad. You know what I mean? When you’re sick, you feel f–king horrible.
“I didn’t die, and I wasn’t gonna die, but that does not take away from how miserable it was. It was terrible. I still have side effects. I was sick for, like, two months almost.”
Billie Eilish’s diagnosis came after she debuted her latest album, “Happier than Ever,” in late July. She was nominated last month for seven Grammy Awards for the album, including in the “Record of the Year” category.
