BTS Member J-Hope Tests Positive For COVID-19
BTS member J-Hope has tested positive for COVID-19, according to his record label Big Hit Music.
In a statement released earlier today on the group’s Weverse page, Big Hit Music confirmed J-Hope has tested positive for COVID-19 after taking a PCR test.
The label noted that the singer had begun experiencing symptoms of a sore throat on March 23, which promoted him to take a test the same day as a precaution.
“J-Hope is currently not presenting any extraordinary symptoms other than a sore throat, and is undergoing treatment at home while under quarantine,” Big Hit said.
“The company places the artists’ health as our top priority, and we will do everything we can to aid J-Hope in his speedy recovery, they added.”
J-Hope is now the sixth BTS member to have caught the virus, following RM, Jin, Suga, Jimin and V in past months. You can read more about this here.
