Jeremih, who was hospitalized due to complications of COVID-19, has been moved from the ICU as he recovers.

According to a statement obtained by Billboard on Saturday (Nov. 21) from a spokesperson for Jeremih’s family and team, “Jeremih has been transferred out of ICU. He will spend the rest of his recovery time in a regular hospital room. The true healing begins. Thank you all for your continued prayers and wishes.”

The R&B singer had reportedly been on a ventilator in a Chicago hospital while battling the novel coronavirus.

Earlier in the week, a representative for Jeremih’s family told CNN that the virus had “viciously attacked his body,” and that they wanted to remind others that “COVID-19 is real and not to be taken lightly. It’s important for people infected to quarantine and let their families and friends know ASAP. There’s no shame in contracting COVID-19, and people that have it need to be responsible and considerate of others.”
