Marianne Faithfull may not be able to sing ever again as her lungs were permanently damaged after getting infected with the coronavirus.

After recovering from the disease, the 74-year-old English singer-songwriter and actress reveled she has also suffered short-term memory loss and fatigue.

"I have to have oxygen and all that stuff. The side-effects are so strange. Some people come back from it but they can't walk or speak.
Awful," Faithfull said in an interview with The Guardian.

"I may not be able to sing ever again," she added. "Maybe that's over. I would be incredibly upset if that was the case, but, on the other hand, I am 74. I don't feel cursed and I don't feel invincible.
I just feel f---ing human."

A recovery at this age was miraculous for Faithfull, who already has a history of multiple underlying conditions, including emphysema, according to her musical collaborator Warren Ellis.
