Singer John Prine, 73, fighting for life in hospital after sudden coronavirus symptoms

FOLK legend John Prine was hospitalized on Thursday and remains in critical condition as he suffers from a “ sudden onset of Covid-19 symptoms.”

The family of the 73-year-old country singer said that the beloved musician is continuing to receive medical treatment after his coronavirus test results came back as “indeterminate.”

John’s kin released the statement on Twitter: “After a sudden onset of Covid-19 symptoms, John was hospitalized on Thursday (3/26).

“He was intubated Saturday evening, and continues to receive care, but his situation is critical. This is hard news for us to share.

“But so many of you have loved and supported John over the years, we wanted to let you know, and give you the chance to send on more of that love and support now.

“And know that we love you, and John loves you,” they ended on a high note of the musician’s loyal fanbase.

Earlier this month, the Grammy winner’s wife Fiona Prine revealed she had tested positive for the virus but said her husband’s results were “indeterminate.”

She posted to Instagram on March 17: "I have some of the typical symptoms. I didn't have a high fever, but I certainly had a cough and some breathlessness.

“John, however, was also tested and his came back ‘indeterminate.’ There's a chance he may not have this virus, and we are working really, really hard and being really diligent about all of the protocols.

“We are quarantined and isolated from each other and members of the family. It’s hard, I won't lie, but it's absolutely important."

She opened up about John's condition at the time: "So many people have reached out to ask how we are and especially how John is.

"Because many of you know that he's had a lot of different health issues over the years, and he is definitely in that vulnerable population they've been talking about.

"So far, he's fine. He's always got a little something going on, but he's 73-years-old and he may have some issues, but he may not have this virus and I want to keep it that way."

John was diagnosed with cancer in 1998 and had a large area of tissue removed from his neck, which caused a permanent change to his voice.

In 2013, doctors found cancer in his left lung but successfully had it removed.

This past February, the Illinois bluegrass crooner was forced to cancel tour dates both domestic and oversees after he injured his hip.
