The members of the Colombian group Morat announced Thursday that they entered “mandatory quarantine” after Juan Pablo Villamil, one of its members, tested positive for coronavirus after returning from Spain.
The band reported in a statement that they were already in “preventive quarantine” and will move to “mandatory” because they suspect that the four members have the coronavirus. “Friends, being in preventive quarantine for having arrived from Spain, Villa was tested because he had symptoms and was positive for Covid-19,” they said in the message.
Immediately afterwards the band warns: “For having been together for these 14 days and having some similar symptoms, it seems responsible to us to assume that we all have the virus. We will go into mandatory quarantine until everything passes. ”
“For now, we tell you that we are doing well and we will be telling you how everything is progressing. We have had very mild symptoms, “they added in the statement. While Juan Pablo Villamil himself used his Twitter account to announce his positive and clarify that he is fine: “I will tell you what is going on. I will take all necessary isolation measures. ”
The band, created in 2015, is made up of Juan Pablo Isaza, Juan Pablo Villamil and the brothers Martín and Simón Vargas, and is very successful in Spain where they were at the beginning of this month preparing a tour scheduled to begin on August 1.
The members of the band assumed their social responsibility by pointing out that they must be careful not to become “contagion agents.” “We love you and ask you to stay home and listen to what the authorities say,” they added in the statement, which ends with a revelation: “We are going to continue releasing music. Pending next week ”.
Morat achieved fame with themes like My New Vice Y How dare you, and recently presented their new single in Spain, I do not finish.
