Just when you thought that you’ve had enough of Atta Halilintar news, the popular YouTuber just announced that he has tested positive for COVID-19. Again.
The 26-year-old vlogger took to Instagram last night to tell his 18.7 million followers about his condition, posting a couple photos of himself lying in bed as a medical team tended to him.

“Oh God 🙁 Shock!! I’ve [tested] positive for COVID-19 for the second time,” Atta wrote.
Atta came down with COVID-19 only a few weeks before his wedding to singer Aurel Hermansyah earlier this month. He found out about his reinfection after taking a swab PCR test before flying to Solo, Central Java for a job, though he thought Aurel would be the one to test positive due to her recent flu-like symptoms.
Aurel, who tested positive for COVID-19 in mid-February along with most of her family members, was ordered by the doctor to self-isolate for the next five days. Atta also urged those who were recently in contact with the couple to take a swab PCR test.
Atta and Aurel’s highly publicized marriage (and the events leading up to the wedding) prompted heavy criticism from the public as they were broadcasted live on television station RCTI. Not only that, the fact that President Joko Widodo also attended the wedding ceremony as the witness of their vows also invited massive scorn as millions of Indonesians had to make do with minimalist weddings — yet still facing the threat of authorities clamping down on their events harshly — amid strict restrictions imposed during the pandemic.
The Youtuber was also recently condemned due to his outdated views on marriage, in which he expressed that his wife should obey him, arguing that a “husband’s voice is the voice of God,” as well as expressing his desire to have more than a dozen children with Aurel.
