The Spanish tenor Plácido Domingo is admitted by coronavirus in a hospital in the city of Acapulco (Mexico), where he recovers from the disease.

According to the local newspaper ‘Quadratin Guerrero’, the 79-year-old tenor would have already overcome “the most critical part of the disease” and will be discharged from the Del Prado hospital in the coming days.

The media notes that the tenor “will continue his convalescence in a house in the exclusive Brisas Guitarrón subdivision.”

Last week the singer himself reported his positive in the test for the new coronavirus. “I feel it is my moral duty to announce that I have tested positive for Covid-19, the coronavirus,” Domingo said in a message posted on his social media.

“I experienced symptoms of fever and cough, so I decided to have the test and the result was positive,” he explained.

In his message, the singer begged citizens to be “extremely careful” to follow basic guidelines by washing their hands frequently, staying at least 1.5 meters away from others, doing everything possible to prevent the virus to spread.
