Italian singer Andrea Bocelli said on Tuesday he had Covid-19 but has now fully recovered.
He said he was asymptomatic, reports the CNN.
"The pandemic that troubled the world, involved — although in a very slight and almost asymptomatic way — also my person and some members of my family," Bocelli wrote on Facebook.
The classical singer said he didn't reveal he was sick sooner "not to unnecessarily alarm" his fans and protect his family's privacy.
Bocelli said he decided to reveal this now because he is donating blood to participate in a clinical study to find a cure for Covid-19.
In April, as the historic Duomo Cathedral in Milan, Italy, sat closed closed to the public on Easter because of the pandemic, Bocelli gave a special audience-free concert.
