Rocker Alice Cooper has given further details on his experience of having Covid-19. Cooper said the virus made him feel like he did “12 rounds with Roberto Duran”.
Cooper was diagnosed with the virus in 2020 and he recently opened up about the side effects he experienced in a recent interview with Good Day Rochester.
“All it really did with me was it knocked me out”, Cooper said. “For three weeks, I felt like I went 12 rounds with (boxing legend) Roberto Duran; I was just beat up”.
Cooper commented further, “And then every day, you feel a little bit better, then you feel a little bit better, feel a little bit better, and after about a month, you start feeling pretty good”.
“And so now I’m a walking antibody”, he added.
In February, Alice Cooper along with his wife Sheryl received their Covid-19 vaccines at the Immunisation Facility in Phoenix, Arizona. Catch that report here.
In a short clip, the musician also stressed the importence of getting vaccinated against this virus.
“We already had Covid but we’re getting vaccinated anyway”, Cooper said. “Everyone out here has been really nice and you don’t feel like you’re in danger of anything. So come on out. If you haven’t been vaccinated, come on out”.
Sheryl also described the jab as “painless”.
