Till Lindemann of Rammstein is in intensive care–but it’s NOT coronavirus

Rammstein’s Til Lindemann ended up in intensive care in Berlin last night (March 26) with a high fever. Naturally, the first thing anyone thought was coronavirus.

First reports said that he had tested positive. Now the band says that’s not the case. They’ve made this statement:

“Yesterday evening Till Lindemann was admitted to a hospital on the band’s doctor’s advice. He spent the night in intensive care but has been moved as he is feeling better.

“Till has tested negative for the coronavirus.”

The story originated in the German magazine Bild.

We still don’t know what’s wrong with Lindemann, but you can strike COVID-19 from the list.

    Erm, for those who are *not* from Germany: “Bild” is a yellow press tabloid; please don’t call them magazine. The core of an article might be right, but they are infamous for their headlines & rumours they are starting. There’s a saying in German, that reads: “Bild was first to talk with the dead.”
