John Prine has been hospitalized following a sudden onset of coronavirus symptoms, his family revealed on Sunday. The 73-year-old musician is in critical condition, they shared. Prine's wife and manager, Fiona Whelan Prine, had announced earlier in the week that she had tested positive for coronavirus.
"After a sudden onset of Covid-19 symptoms, John was hospitalized on Thursday (3/26). He was intubated Saturday evening, and continues to receive care, but his situation is critical," reads a statement from the family on Prine's Twitter.
"This is hard news for us to share. But so many of you have loved and supported John over the years, we wanted to let you know, and give you the chance to send on more of that love and support now. And know that we love you, and John loves you," the statement concluded.
