Madonna, 61, says she had coronavirus by the end of her Madame X world tour: ‘We all thought we had the flu’
Madonna has claimed to have coronavirus on her Madame X world tour, which has been plagued by cancellations because the singer suffered a knee injury.
The tour ended three days before the scheduled end date, after the French government announced the ban on gatherings of more than 1,000 people to stop the spread of COVID-19.
After recently revealing that she tested positive for coronavirus antibodies, the Material Girl took to her Instagram on Wednesday to further explain her health concerns.

“I’m not sick right now,” said Madonna, before explaining, “If you test positive for antibodies, it means you HAVE the virus I clearly did when I was sick at the end of my Paris tour seven weeks ago . “
The singer said that, along with the other performers and backup dancers on her show, they all thought they had “a very bad flu.”
The post came when she revealed her part in helping raise money for finding a vaccine for the disease. “I am grateful that I can contribute to Research to Find the cure for Covid -19!”
Madonna had previously raised eyebrows with her comments after saying she wanted to go for a ride to “breathe COVID-19 air” after testing positive for the antibodies.

The singer claims that it has proven after a test that her immune system has already seen the coronavirus, although it is unclear whether she has had symptoms.
However, it is still unclear whether those antibodies can provide protection (immunity) against reinfection.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently determine that having the antibodies doesn’t necessarily make you immune to the virus.

Madonna also caused controversy over her comments about the deadly virus when she called it “the great equalizer” while being filmed in a marble bath surrounded by rose petals.
Speaking thoughtfully of the ongoing pandemic as instrumental music played in the background, Madonna said, “That’s the problem with COVID-19. It doesn’t matter how rich you are, how famous you are, how funny you are.
“How smart you are, where you live, how old you are, what great stories you can tell. It’s the great equalizer and the terrible thing is that it’s great about it.
Controversy: The singer recently posted this video of herself in a marble bathtub that COVID-19 called “ the great equalizer, ” then removed.
“What’s horrible about it is that it has made us all equal in many ways and the great thing is that it has made us all equal in many ways.
“As I said every night at the end of human nature, when the ship goes down, we all go down together.”
The Material Girl singer later deleted the video after receiving massive backlash online.
