Doja Cat is speaking candidly about her Coronavirus diagnosis.

During an interview with Capital XTRA on Friday (July 25), the 24-year-old rapper said that she was diagnosed with the virus and was able to make a full recovery. “I got COVID. Honestly, I don’t know how this happens but I guess I ordered something off of Postmates and... I don’t know how I got it but I got it,” she confessed.

“I’m okay now. It was a four-day symptom freak out but I’m fine now,” she added.

Doja Cat’s confession came after an Instagram Live session in which she didn’t appear to understand the severity of the virus. “I’m not scared of Coronavirus,” she said during a live stream in March. “You just take some Mucinex and drink water and tea and sleep — that’s all you gotta do.”

The “Say So” songstress joined a handful of celebrities, who have also been diagnosed with Coronavirus, including D.L. Hughley, Russell Westbrook, Idris Elba and more. During Scarface’s experience, he faced kidney failure.

“COVID attacked my lungs first, and then it attacked my kidneys and knocked them out,” he said. “I got full lung recovery, but my kidneys never came back. I’m still a little weak. I don’t have a lot of strength in my legs yet. I still haven’t got full taste back and sense of smell yet. But, I am glad to be alive.”

Aside from her recent interview, Doja Cat donated $100,000 to Breonna Taylor’s justice fund last month. In a post to Instagram, the “Juicy” spitter revealed the news. “Happy birthday to the beautiful Breonna Taylor, who would have been celebrating her 27th birthday today,” she wrote. “I am donating $100,000 to Justice For Breonna Taylor Fund #BIRTHDAYFORBREONNA and I am inviting you all to honor and celebrate her with me by donating whatever you can and signing her petition - the link is in my bio.”
