3 BTS members test Covid-19 positive

BTS members RM, Jin and Suga tested positive for Covid-19 this weekend.

While RM and Suga have exhibited no symptoms, Big Hit Music confirmed that Jin was showing mild symptoms.

After the agency confirmed their diagnosis, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus reached out to the BTS members on Twitter. He hoped that the trio would recover soon and reminded everyone to get vaccinated.

“Dear @BTS_twt Namjoon, Jin & Yoongi, rest well & feel better soon! 빨리 낫길 바랄게요 (I hope you get well soon). It’s so important for everyone to take precautions: Wear a well-fitting mask, keep a safe distance, avoid poorly ventilated, crowded spaces, clean hands and get vaccinated when it’s your turn,” he tweeted.

Earlier this year, BTS members were appointed as South Korea's Special Presidential Envoy for Future Generations and Culture.
