Domingo has coronavirus

Post by Philip M » Sun Mar 22, 2020 2:02 pm

I feel it is my moral duty to announce to you that I have tested positive for COVID19, the Corona virus. My Family and I are all in self isolation for as long as it is deemed medically necessary. Currently we are all in good health but I experienced fever and cough symptoms therefore deciding to get tested and the result came back positive.

I beg everyone to be extremely careful, follow the basic guidelines by washing your hands frequently, keeping at least a 6 feet distance from others, doing everything you can to stop the virus from spreading and please above all stay home if you can ! Together we can fight this virus and stop the current worldwide crisis, so we can hopefully return to our normal daily lives very soon. Please follow your local government’s guidelines and regulations for staying safe and protecting not just yourselves but our entire community.

Well, I'm sad to hear that, and I hope he recovers well.

His son Jose is a very dear friend of mine. He had been sending me videos of his fathers Operas with Carlos Kleiber last week to keep me occupied whilst in Lockdown. He said his father thought Kleiber the Greatest Conductor.

Then yesterday he sent me a Text about his fathers condition. Sadly he’s unable to be with him at this crucial time.

Here is the statement from Placido Domingo

"I feel it is my moral duty to announce to you that I have tested positive for COVID19," he wrote. "My Family and I are all in self-isolation for as long as it is deemed medically necessary."
Domingo said that he is currently in good health but decided to get tested after experiencing "fever and cough symptoms."
He encouraged his fans to wash their hands and follow the guidelines and regulations that local governments have put in place.
"Together we can fight this virus and stop the current worldwide crisis, so we can hopefully return to our normal daily lives very soon,"

“He said his father thought Kleiber the Greatest Conductor.”

Can’t argue with that! He’s certainly the greatest I have heard live (I heard Stokowski very late in his life so, amazing as he was, he was not in his prime).

Chalkie … nice to see you hear. How are you doing in NY with the lockdown? I can only imagine that it is a difficult time there for everyone.
