Queen guitarist Brian May, 74, says there is “life after Covid” but urges the public to “be careful”, after he tested positive earlier this week. In an update shared this morning, the music legend said that he is feeling much better and thanked fans for their well-wishes.
He told his 2.9 million followers: “Day 7 – and it seems to me the Covid positive red line is less strong today.
“So, I’m feeling that my immune system, with the enormous help of three Pfizer jabs, is now winning the battle against the invader.
“So do NOT be afraid – there IS life after Covid! But DO be careful… you do not want this, and neither do your family.
“Thanks for all your great messages – in spite of my pleas for no sympathy! Much appreciated.”

In a later clip, Brian explained that he caught the virus when he and his wife, Anita Dobson, went to a friend’s birthday lunch.
He said: “We all walk around fearful of what happened if we got this terrible plague. Well, it’s kind of ironic for me and we’ve been incredibly careful, Anita and myself, really not going anywhere and being hermit-like for the past 20 months or so.
“Then last Saturday, we decided we would go to a birthday lunch, and we thought, well this is the last social function we would go to, we’ll chance it, everybody’s going to be triple jabbed.
“So, it seemed to be set up very safely, but of course you kind of know you’re taking a risk.”
The Queen legend continued: “In retrospect, perhaps we made the wrong decision, we could have seen him another time, but that’s history now. It seemed like a safe situation, you have your negative tests, so what could possibly go wrong?
“We thought we were in a safe bubble, so we didn’t wear masks… The new variant seems to be so incredibly transmissible that I’m not even sure that would have been safe, this thing is spreading at such an alarming rate.
“It’s like the worst flu you can imagine. I nearly came on here to show how pathetic I looked.”
Brian said his symptoms included a “terrible cough” and headaches.

He also urged the public to get their Covid vaccines.
The guitarist added: “I lost one of my best friends to Covid very early on, in six days it killed him. Could have done me in the last six days but it didn’t because I’ve been jabbed.
“I despair people protesting against the vaccine… Jesus Christ guys, our parents fought through wars and had their civil rights taken away.”
Brian was inundated with support from his concerned fans.
Vicky Gordon wrote: “I’m so glad you’re on the mend.! I hope Anita is feeling better, too. Your positive attitude is key. Christmas can be postponed – doesn’t have to be completely cancelled. I was and am worried about you. Thanks for keeping us updated!”
Valerie Dalby added: “Sending my love and blessings to you and your beautiful Anita. Rest and get better! Wishing you and your family a happy and safe holiday season.”
Teresa52centeno echoed: “I agree with you Brian I lost a brother due to Covid and it was at a time where there was no vaccine out. Please get vaccinated people.”
