The year 2020 was scheduled to begin with a bang and continue being amazing with events and concerts by renowned artists. But the coronavirus pandemic had canceled all those plans and forced many to cancel their events, like Madonna, who had many shows pending in her “Madam X” tour but had to cancel them.

Since then, she has been spreading awareness about COVID-19 but it looks like she is ready to throw caution to the winds.

When April began, Madonna had joined hands with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation "to find a drug that will prevent or treat COVID-19."

"We need this to protect our health workers, the most vulnerable, and all of our friends and families," she said in an announcement. "I send enormous gratitude and strength to the courageous first responders, medical professionals and scientists who are protecting our communities, those suffering and our most vulnerable."

But since she got back the results on her antibody test, Madonna is going back on her own words

Madonna has recently revealed on Instagram that she has tested positive for novel coronavirus (COVID-19) antibodies in a video titled "Quarantine Diaries No. 14."

"I took a test the other day, and I found out that I have the antibodies," Madonna said. "So tomorrow I'm just going to go for a long drive in the car, I'm going to roll down the window and I'm going to breathe in the COVID-19 air. Yup. I hope the sun is shining.”

"Here's the good news: tomorrow's another day and I'm going to wake up and I'm going to feel differently,” she further added.

But just because one tests positive for COVID-19 antibodies, doesn’t mean that they are immune to the virus

The mere fact that Madonna tested positive for antibodies, means that she was exposed to the virus. There is also the fact, as stated by the Centers for Disease Control, that testing positive for COVID-19 antibodies is no guarantee for one being immune to the virus.

"A positive test result shows you have antibodies that likely resulted from an infection with SARS-CoV-2, or possibly a related coronavirus," the CDC says.

"It’s unclear if those antibodies can provide protection (immunity) against getting infected again. This means that we do not know at this time if antibodies make you immune to the virus."
