Brendan Schaub has indeed tested positive for COVID-19, but that hasn’t stopped his belief about the virus.
Without getting into political beliefs, here’s the facts of his situation, which he doesn’t think is too bad.
First on Twitter and later on the latest episode of the Fighter and the Kid podcast, Schaub noted he has been diagnosed with the coronavirus but has almost made a full recovery after three days.
“Brendan and I did everything wrong in Texas,” Brian Callen said on their podcast (H/T to Bloody Elbow). “We basically practiced no social distancing, got up in front of 350 people as they were laughing at us, and shouting at us. We got off stage, didn’t change mics, shared it.”
Brendan Schaub On COVID-19
“I never said it was not real or anything like that. I went about living my life. I got it, and you know what? I’m fine!” Schaub said. Just like what my doctor told me, what you’re experiencing, 97% of all people who get corona, experience the same thing. I’m fine. My family’s fine. I’ve bunkered down, I quarantined and that’s what it is.
“I don’t agree that (we did everything wrong),” Schaub told Callen. “If you were any older, had underlying issues like obesity or diabetes, or pneumonia before, yeah, you shouldn’t be on tour.”
Schaub also questioned if Callen actually has COVID-19.
“Here’s the thing, I hate to do this to you, but I think you’re jumping on the corona train, I don’t really think you have it,” Schaub said. “I gotta be honest. You’re just trying to jump on this train.”
