New Order frontman Bernard Sumner has revealed that he has contracted coronavirus and is recovering from the disease.

In an interview to Minnesota radio station The Current, Sumner said he is lucky that he “didn’t get it too bad.”

“I felt I had a little bit of a temperature, but not much. I had it for four days, it went away for four days, and then it came back for four days,” Sumner said. “When it came back, it was more severe, but still not too bad. I just felt extreme fatigue, like a really bad hangover. Then it went away, and I’m OK.”

“But I’ve heard horror stories over here [in the UK] about it. A couple of people know people who’ve died from it,” he told The Current‘s Jill Riley. “It seems like Russian roulette. Like, you can get light symptoms, like me, or it can kill you. It’s crazy.”

The health problem forced Sumner’s band to reschedule their co-headlining North America tour with Pet Shop Boys this autumn to September next year.
