Opera star Placido Domingo: I’ve tested positive

OPERA singer Placido Domingo has revealed that he has contracted coronavirus.

The Spanish tenor, 79, said in a post on his personal Facebook page: ‘I feel it is my moral duty to announce to you that I have tested positive for COVID19.’

Domingo (pictured) said he and his family are in self-isolation and that he is feeling well despite having a fever and a cough.

He added: ‘I beg everyone to be extremely careful, follow the basic guidelines by washing your hands frequently, keeping at least a 6ft distance from others, doing everything you can to stop the virus from spreading and please above all stay home if you can!’

Domingo has recently been accused by several women of sexual misconduct. He denies any wrongdoing.
