American comedian Chris Rock has tested positive for COVID-19 and is urging his followers to get vaccinated.

The comedian took to his Twitter page on Sunday, September 19, 2021, where he revealed his symptoms.

“Hey guys I just found out I have COVID, trust me you don’t want this. Get vaccinated," he tweeted.

Rock, 56, has been vocal in the fight against COVID throughout the pandemic—and even surprised New Yorkers by appearing at one of former Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s press conferences to urge mask-wearing.

Rock joins the list of celebrities who have been infected with the virus globally.

From Tom Hanks and his wife to comedian, Kevin Hart, the list of high-profile people who have been infected with the dreaded virus appears to be rising.
