News of Jeremih’s condition began circulating on Saturday (November 14) after 50, Hitmaka and Chance The Rapper sent their well wishes on social media.
Hitmaka previously worked with Jeremih on songs such as “Giv No Fuks” with Migos and “Dangerous” featuring Meek Mill and PnB Rock. He wrote, “I need everyone to pray for my brother @jeremih. this message is posted with his mothers blessings.”
Meanwhile, 50 and Jeremih have performed together numerous times and collaborated on tracks such as “Down On Me” and “Still Think I’m Nothing.”
Jeremih’s hospitalization comes as the United States is experiencing a record surge in COVID-19 cases. Over 11 million people have been diagnosed with the virus in the U.S. alone, including one million children.
According to CNN, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) plans to meet next week to discuss who will get the coronavirus vaccine first. Members of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices received notice they’ll convene November 23 for five hours, committee member Dr. William Schaffner said.
Dr. Anthony Fauci told the news outlet on Sunday (November 15) he expects the first vaccinations to occur “towards the latter part of December,” but there won’t be enough for everyone, so priorities must be set. Health care workers, essential workers, those over age 65 and people with underlying conditions will be first in line.
