How does it feel? Grim news out of the UK today with the reveal that New Order singer Bernard Sumner is recovering from a bout with the dreaded coronoavirus. He shared his diagnosis during an interview with The Current in Minneapolis, explaining that among the symptoms was a pronounced loss of smell.
“I was one of the lucky ones, I didn’t get it too bad," Sumner said. "I felt I had a little bit of a temperature, but not much. I had it for four days, it went away for four days, and then it came back for four days. When it came back, it was more severe, but still not too bad. I just felt extreme fatigue, like a really bad hangover. Then it went away, and I’m OK. But I’ve heard horror stories over here [in the UK] about it. A couple of people know people who’ve died from it … It seems like Russian roulette. Like, you can get light symptoms, like me, or it can kill you. It’s crazy."
