As he was accepting the award for Video Con El Mensaje Más Poderoso for his music video for "Rojo," Balvin shared that the past days have been very difficult for him.
"I am recovering from COVID-19," he shared in Spanish. "I've had difficult days, very complicated days. At times you think that you won't get it, and I got it. It hit me really hard. I'm sending a message to everyone who follows me, all young people, people in general, please take care of yourselves. Protect yourselves. This is not a joke... The virus exists and it's very dangerous. Please take care of yourselves. I'm recovering and I love you all."
“Thank you to everyone who has reached out,” she said. “I did have COVID-19 and it was very difficult, [and] painful, but I'm recuperating.”
"Thank you for the sweet messages and for everyone that has worried about me,” she continued. “All I can [say] is, please take care of yourself. COVID-19 is real. I didn't want to make this news public ... but I'm doing well."
