BTS: WHO chief contacts RM, Jin and Suga after testing positive for Covid-19, wishes them a speedy recovery
BTS members RM, Jin and Suga tested positive for Covid-19 earlier this weekend. While RM and Suga did not show any symptoms, Big Hit Music confirmed that Jin had mild symptoms.
After the agency confirmed his diagnosis, the director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus contacted members of BTS on Twitter. He hoped the trio would recover soon and reminded everyone to get the shot.
“Dear @BTS_twt Namjoon, Jin & Yoongi, get good rest and feel better soon! 낫길 바랄 게요 (hope you get well soon). It is so important that everyone take precautions: wear a mask well adjusted, keep a safe distance, avoid poorly ventilated and overcrowded spaces, clean hands and get vaccinated when it’s your turn, ”he tweeted.
Fans thanked Dr Tedros for his tweet and prayed for the speedy recovery of RM, Jin and Suga. They also joined him in urging other fans to get vaccinated and take the necessary precautions.
Dr Tedros has often tweeted about BTS. Earlier this year, when BTS members were appointed South Korea’s Special Presidential Envoys for Future Generations and Culture, Dr Tedros tweeted: “Dear @BTS_twt Namjoon, Jin, Yoongi, Hobi, Jimin, Tae & Jungkook, congratulations on your appointment as #SouthKorea Special Presidential Envoy for Future Generations and Culture! A well-deserved title for a band that uses music and lyrics to bring hope and healing to the world.
Also in 2020, he praised Jimin for breaking the rules of Covid-19 during one of his Vlives for the kids to understand. Sharing a video of the same on Twitter, Dr Tedros said: “What a very thoughtful post from @BTS_twt Jimin – (thank you)! Children are indeed affected by the # COVID19 restrictions, we must do our best to help them understand the situations, support them and comfort them. Together, we will end this pandemic. #Be useful.”
