Estefan reveals she caught coronaviru­s, now recovered


MIAMI (AP) – Singer and businesswo­man Gloria Estefan said on Wednesday that she spent much of November in isolation after testing positive for COVID-19, days after dining outdoors at a Miami-area restaurant. Estefan, 63, says she was fortunate, enduring only “a little bit of a cough” and dehydratio­n after losing her sense of smell and taste, and has tested negative twice since recovering. In a video shared on Instagram, the Cuban-born “Conga” singer says she was infected despite rigorously following public health protocols, and speculates that she could have been exposed by a fan who was not wearing a mask. The fan tapped on her shoulder and got very close to talk to her as she was dining with three family members, Estefan said.
