    Tool/A Perfect Circle frontman Maynard James Keenan has revealed that he was diagnosed with COVID-19 back in late February, before a global pandemic was declared.

    Speaking to AZ CentralMaynard explained that while he beat the illness, he still suffers from lung damage and has only recently beaten other side-effects caused by the disease. He said:

    “I kind of didn't want to run around screaming it. But it's real. And there's after-effects. I had to go through some major medications to undo the residual effects. Still coughing. There's still lung damage.

    Every other day, I have these coughing fits because my lungs are still damaged at the tips. And I just got over the inflammation that was going on with my wrist and hands. I had an autoimmune attack on my system in the form of, like, a rheumatoid arthritis. Basically, from what I understand, it attacks weird spots and it's random. So that's what I got. That was my prize.

    (People not wearing masks) is just an absurdity. We wear seatbelts. We don't smoke in trains, planes or taxis anymore, or even restaurants. There's reasons for those things. I don't know. I feel like there's this twist on the idea of personal freedom where somehow freedom is you being able to walk into anybody's house and take a dump on their meal or shout ugly things at their grandma. That's not what freedom is.

    Freedom is the ability to pursue your lifestyle, pursue what you want to do for your family, for your future, what education you want to get. And with that freedom comes a responsibility to look out for yourself, for your neighbor, for your family, for everybody. So there are some compromises that come along with freedom. I'm not sure why that's so difficult to grasp.”

    We wish Maynard a full recovery soon; COVID-19 has now claimed the lives of over 1 million people globally since it began spreading, and is still the cause of strict lockdowns in many places around the world including Victoria, Australia.
