BTS’ agency BIGHIT MUSIC on Wednesday via a Weverse post announced that member Kim Tae-hyung, popularly known as V has tested positive for COVID-19.
The statement reported that V completed two rounds of COVID-19 vaccinations and is not presenting any extraordinary symptoms other than a mild fever and sore throat. It said that he is currently undergoing treatment at home while waiting for further guidelines from the health care authorities.
Sharing health updates of the singer, the agency wrote, “V visited the hospital Tuesday afternoon on the 15th after experiencing a mild sore throat and took the PCR test. He was diagnosed with COVID-19 tonight.”
Unfortunately, V was in contact with other members of the band last when they met on Saturday, February 12, however, everyone was wearing a mask and there was no close contact between the members.
All the members have been tested for COVID-19 and none of the BTS members other than V is said to be presenting any symptoms, and they all tested negative from the pre-emptive tests, informed BIGHIT MUSIC.
“The company places the artists’ health as our top priority and we will do everything we can to aid V in his speedy recovery. We will also diligently cooperate with the requests and guidelines of the health care authorities,” the Weverse statement by the agency read.
Hours after the statement was released, fans took to Twitter sharing that the Weverse statement was suddenly missing and that they could not find the update which made some ARMY suspicious about what was going on.
Fans who were sending wishes for Taehyung to get better soon began wondering if something was wrong. Take a look at the Tweets!
