Artists who had COVID-19

The title says it all. We have collections for artists who died of cancer, in car and airplane crashes and of AIDS (and even those who died onstage), so why not have one with those who had coronavirus disease? Worth mentioning that not everyone who caught the disease died. This is meant to be informational only.

Confirmed on March 14 2020.

I could only find news saying that he tested negative, based on an Instagram post of his. Did he later test positive? If so, would you mind giving a source?

He actually said the test was negative on 03/30/20, but he remains in hospital with pneumonia. I will remove my post. I understood that his case was confirmed earlier.

The guitarist of the band "Riot", Lou Kouvaris, also died of COVID-19.
