Just days ago, Jeremih’s family spoke to CNN to urge people to take COVID-19 seriously.
“His family would like to remind the world that COVID-19 is real and not to be taken lightly,” they said in a statement provided to CNN. “Also, It’s important for people infected to quarantine and let their families and friends know ASAP. There’s no shame in contracting COVID-19, and people that have it need to be responsible and considerate of others.”
