In a statement posted on the WeVerse platform, the group’s management revealed that the idol suffered from a sore throat and visited the hospital to take a PCR test on Wednesday, March 23. His results, released on Thursday morning, turned out positive. 

They also said that J-Hope has already completed his three rounds of vaccines, and is not experiencing any symptoms aside from the sore throat.  He is being treated at home while under quarantine. 

“The company places the artists’ health as our top priority, and we will do everything we can to aid J-Hope in his speedy recovery,” the statement continued.
