“The Stigma I Felt Is Something I’ve Never Felt Before!” – Muxu on His COVID-19 Diagnosis


Local Singer-Songwriter Matt Mercieca aka Muxu has opened up on his COVID-19 diagnosis. Taking to Instagram, Muxu confirmed that “as most of you heard or suspected, it is true that I do have Corona[virus].”

Muxu is currently self-isolating where he has been for quite a while, whilst adding that his symptoms have been very mild and “I am one of the lucky ones.”



In his message, Muxu appealed for everyone to be kinder and more compassionate with people who have tested positive for the virus.

“Nobody gets it willingly, and the stigma I felt because of having it, it something I’ve never felt before,” he wrote, further adding that “if someone you know and love has it, check in on them, by sending them a message” rather than “being a constant reminder that there is something currently wrong with them.”



On his mental health, he said that the diagnosis has been hard mentally, but “thank God I’ve been raised to keep good energies in challenging moments.”

Honestly, take care of yourselves people – the singer concluded.

From all of us at Bay, hang in there Muxu, you got this!
