After being discharged from the hospital, BTOB’s Minhyuk opened up about his experience and recovery from COVID-19. He shared, “It was terrible. I was very ill.”
On July 30th, Lee Min Hyuk went live on Instagram. He explained the symptoms he had, including weight loss, fever, cough, and headache, and urged fans to be careful.
Lee was tested positive for the virus on July 17th and was hospitalized for two weeks to treat the symptoms. He shared, “I barely knew what was going on for a week. My temperature kept rising to 39 degrees Celsius from the day I first showed the symptoms. At that time, fever reducer didn’t really help because even when I was on them, the lowest temperature I ever got was around 38 degrees Celsius.”
When his fans showed concerns about his weight loss, he reassured fans that he’s gotten better, saying, “I lost a lot of muscle mass because I couldn’t work out during the time. But I think I look better with a little bit of weight loss.” He continued, “I will take good care of myself so that I won’t suffer any after-effects. And I urge you to please be careful.”
