“And I really do love chatting to you, but I don't want to get sick, I'll take selfies from a distance or shoot your vid.”

Adele explained, “I might have symptoms and then I can't do my show and I will be damned if I cancel any more of these shows. I refuse to cancel any shows.”

“I just can't risk getting ill. Honestly my immune system is in the gutter and I want to be close to you and stuff like that, but I just can't risk it,” she noted.

Adele added, “I am a germaphobe, so I might be being dramatic. But they do all have COVID. But I use hand gel a lot.”

“I have got nine weeks left. This is my 26th weekend. It was my 50th show last Saturday, which felt like such a milestone,” she concluded.
