Mikkey Dee, drummer of the hard rock band, Scorpions has confirmed the news of having contracted the coronavirus.

Fellow musician, Dan Dokken recently spoke to Songfacts and stated that Dee and his wife had contracted the illness during their time in Australia and that he had lost a whopping total of 35 pounds during his month-long battle against it.

"I talked to Mikkey Dee from the Scorpions the other night, and he and his wife got COVID in Australia," Dokken shared in the interview.
"They were in the middle of nowhere and got it. He called me up and he said, 'I'll tell you, Don, you don't want to get it. I was on the floor.' He lost 35 pounds. He was sick as a dog. He was in a hospital. He was really in bad shape. He said, 'I don't know how I got it.' Because they had social distancing big-time in Australia."

Shortly thereafter, Dee posted a lengthy post to Instagram, in which he clarified a few of the facts that Dokken had gotten wrong in the interview, writing, "I did not get Corona in Australia, the virus was contracted in Sweden. I did not lose 35 pounds, I lost 15 pounds."

In the same post, he also reassured his fans by confirming that he had become fully recovered towards the end of April, and that he had even registered antibodies by that time.

"Thank you guys for caring and my heart goes out to each and everyone affected by the current situation our world is in," he added.
