Charlie Puth has tested positive for COVID-19.
The American singer-songwriter announced the news through a Twitter post on Thursday afternoon, December 16, Manila time.
The 30-year-old hit maker tweeted, “Hey everyone. I tested positive for COVID this morning. I’m not feeling amazing but I think the worst is behind me.
“I write you this update, feeling like complete ass, in hopes that you will be safe and careful this holiday season. Love you and I’ll speak to you very soon.”

A record producer as well, Charlie is best known for his chart-topping hits like “Marvin Gaye” on which he collaborated with Meghan Trainor; “See You Again” which he performed with Wiz Khalifa, “We Don’t Talk Anymore” with Selena Gomez; and his single “One Call Away.”
Just recently, it was reported that he was able to reach more than a billion streams on Spotify this 2021.
He has also held concerts in the Philippines twice. The first one was for a show at Eastwood City in 2015 while the second one was in 2016 for his “Nine Track Mind” concert tour held at the KIA Theater. He was supposed to come back in the country in 2018 but the show was canceled due to “unforeseen circumstances.”
Meanwhile, with the ongoing pandemic, other artists from all over the world have also been affected by COVID. It was reported earlier this month that Lisa Manoban of the K-pop group BLACKPINK has recovered from the virus as announced by her agency YG Entertainment.
