Slim Thug is assisting his hometown of Houston by helping some of the workers who can’t stay home during the spread of COVID-19.
According to ABC 13, Slim donated 1,000 bottles of hand sanitizer to the city’s police and bus drivers shortly after he tested positive for the illness himself. He also plans to give those workers 1,000 more bottles by April 15.
Slim partnered with the company Smoke Shield for the donation, as well as the rapper Baby Bash. They’ll give bottles of hand sanitizer to health care workers through the month of April too.
“I want our police officers and bus drivers to know that we appreciate their service during this tough time,” Slim told ABC 13. “They have always been a huge part of keeping Houston going.”
Slim revealed his diagnosis in a March 24 Instagram video and said he tested positive for the virus despite being careful.
“So check this out. No games being played, alright?” he said in the clip. “The other day, I got tested for the coronavirus yesterday and it came back positive. As careful as I’ve been, self-quarantining, staying home, I might have did, went got something to eat or something or did some stuff like that. Simple stuff like that, nothing crazy. Stayed in my truck, had mask, gloves, everything on and my test came back positive.”
“So y’all gotta take this stuff serious,” added Slim. “Sit home, self-quarantine, do not come outside for however long they saying. If you have symptoms, you need to go get checked out or whatever.”
Slim spoke with ABC News after the diagnosis and said he feels much better. He also talked about the symptoms he had.
“I’m feeling good,” he explained. “This weekend I had a slight headache, I had a slight fever, not even over 100. I had a little cough but nothing too crazy.”
