21 Savage revealed he hasn't been feeling too hot this week. So, of course, many people's minds immediately went to the coronavirus

"I been breaking down my symptoms I been feeling and shit. Everybody keep talking 'bout it sound like coronavirus," he explained in a Saturday Instagram story. "So I say, 'OK, say less.' Where could I have received this coronavirus from? So I go to thinking about my schedule. OK, where I went? OK, we went to the club the other night."

Though an infectious disease could easily spread in a crowded spaces, 21 was said he wasn't convinced he caught coronavirus while at the nightclub. Why? Because he was surrounded by fuck boys who were seemingly spared. 

"So I'm like, ain't no way in hell I caught it in the club, 'cause I know it ain't just skipped over and came straight to me type shit," he said. "'Cause it's like, damn, whoever the higher power is, bruh, I know it's 60, 70 fuck n***as in the club. I came with some of the fuck n***as. So, I know it's a good amount of fuck n***as in the club tonight," he said. "Ain't no way in hell this shit done skipped over all these fuck n***as and just landed right on me." 

It's unclear if 21 went to a hospital or was tested for the virus, but he told his followers he decided to get an IV. 

"So I go to describe what I need. It feels like I have a sinus cold. That’s what I’m describing," he said. "It don't matter what I describe. If I describe anything during these times, it's automatically, 'Oh, he got the coronavirus.' I can call them folks and say whatever, they still gon' say, 'coronavirus.'"

According to the New York Times, the United States had nearly 2,500 confirmed coronavirus cases as of Saturday afternoon. Georgia, where 21 is based, has 66 total confirmed cases and one coronavirus-related death. Days after the outbreak was confirmed a pandemic, President Donald Trump declared a national emergency to combat the health crisis. 

"I am officially declaring a national emergency — two very big words," Trump told reporters Friday in the Rose Garden. "The action I am taking will open up access to up to $50 billion ... and a large amount of money for states, territories and localities ... We've been working very hard on this. We will overcome the threat of the virus."
