Famous American folk singer-songwriter John Prine, also a two-time Grammy Award Winner, is in critical condition and has been placed on a ventilator while being treated for coronavirus symptoms, his family members said. 

Associated Press told on Sunday that Prine, 73, was hospitalized since Thursday after showing COVID-19 symptoms and his condition worsened on Saturday.   

“This is hard news for us to share,” Prine’s family said. “But as many of you have loved and supported John over the years, we wanted to let you know… and know that we love you and John loves you.”

Earlier this month, Prine’s wife and manager Fiona Whelan Prine told that she has tested positive for coronavirus. From then the couple were quarantined and isolated from each other, she added. 

 John Prine has fought cancer for two times. He diagnosed with lung cancer in 2013, although he recovered but affected his voice – Prine continued to make music and tour.
