Queen’s Brian May has had a ‘truly horrible few days’ after catching Covid

Brian May has revealed that he has tested positive for coronavirus, leaving him feeling ‘truly horrible’. 

The legendary Queen guitarist, 74, took to Instagram to share photos of his positive lateral flow test as he warned others to be careful over the festive season. 

He wrote: ‘Yep. The shocking day finally came for me. The dreaded double red line. And yes – definitely NO sympathy please – it has been a truly horrible few days, but I’m OK. And I will tell the tale.’

Brian urged his followers to look after themselves, adding: ‘PLEASE take extra care out there, good folks. 

‘This thing is incredibly transmissible. You really do NOT want it messing up YOUR Christmas. With love – Bri.’

Medical experts have warned that the Omicron variant is more transmissible than other variants of coronavirus, with the UK having recorded over 90,000 cases for the second day in a row on Saturday. 

Brian reassured fans that he was doing OK despite having Covid, after previously going through a series of health issues.

The musician has previously suffered a heart attack and stomach haemorrhage as well as a tear in his gluteus maximum and a compressed sciatic nerve. 

He underwent an operation to insert three stents into blocked arteries in his heart after he said he was ‘very near death’ due to the blood supply to his heart being affected by the blockages. 

Brian’s wife, Anita Dobson, previously revealed on Loose Women: ‘It was a sort of litany of disasters really. When we first got the news that the studios and theatres were closing and Covid had struck, you sort of think “oh, a little respite from work so make the most of it.”

‘And then first of all he got sciatica, then he had a heart attack and then he had a haemorrhage, so he was really in a bad way.’
