Jonathan Davis from Korn has spoken out about his fight against Covid-19, saying that it was "completely wiped out" by it.

In an interview with HardDrive Radio, Davis said he was now "feeling excited" after taking a brief hiatus from the band to recover from the virus.

"I'm in a good place, [we brought out] new music … life is good," said Davis, adding, "We just did this tour, did that. I've recovered well from COVID, so thank God for that, it was tough for me. "

Davis continued, "I tested positive on August 14th."

“I was at a gig in Scranton. My girl had tested positive three days ago. So I was hoping I wouldn't get infected. I continued testing. I was like "negative, negative, negative," like, "Oh, I just dodged a bullet." Then I tested positive. I was scared as hell; I freaked out.

Davis added, “I was totally wiped out. I couldn't move – only the body hurt. "

“I haven't had anything damn it in a month. But thank God it didn't get into my lungs; that would have really scared me.

He continued, “But I put it through and tested negative on the 25th I think and played a show the next day.

"And I got beaten up, but I just couldn't find it in my heart … I just wanted to get through it because I saw how happy people were to see live music and I just didn't want to let anyone down."

Davis wasn't the only Korn member to test positive while the band was on tour.

Guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer and drummer Ray Luzier also tested positive for the virus, forcing the band to replace J.R. Bareis from Love And Death and Aric Improta from Fever 333 up for grabs.
