Till Lindemann, lead singer of the band Rammstein, did not end up in intensive care because he was infected with the corona virus. The German newspaper Bild (€) wrote that Friday, but via the official Facebook page of the band it has now been announced that the singer has been tested and it turned out to be something else.

On the Facebook page there is a short statement: "Last night, Till Lindeman was hospitalized on doctor's advice. He was in intensive care overnight, but has since gotten rid of it and is feeling better. Till's corona test came back negative."

Bild wrote that the singer would be in a hospital in Berlin where he is being quarantined. The 57-year-old singer reportedly reported to a doctor last week because he had a high fever, but that has not been confirmed.

Lindemann performed solo in Moscow on March 15.

The coronavirus in short

  • The coronavirus mainly spreads from person to person via sneezing and cough drops. The chance of becoming infected through surfaces such as door handles is small. This chance decreases if you wash your hands often.
  • You can considerably reduce the chance of spreading by keeping at least 1.5 meters away from others.
  • An infected person infects two to three others on average. Precautions are necessary to contain this.
  • The vast majority of patients have mild (flu-like) complaints.
  • Almost all deaths involve the elderly or other vulnerable persons, such as heart, lung or diabetes patients. If everyone complies with the measures, this reduces their risks.
