Quarantined Rapper is Now out of the Hospital

Christiaan Van Vuuren became a viral video star when he produced a rap video while under quarantine for drug-resistant tuberculosis. His quarantine lasted longer than he expected, so he produced a second video. Thankfully, Van Vuuren is now home from the hospital after living there in isolation for six months:

His spoof clips and comedic raps about his time in hospital - about 13 of them have been posted to YouTube - have been viewed nearly 1.5 million times and van Vuuren's online celebrity even got him a regular gig on prime time national news in New Zealand, rapping the news of the day.

Asked how he felt about his imminent departure from hospital, van Vuuren said he was "buzzing". His clear test results only came back on Friday.

"I'm just pumped to get home and sleep in my own bed, breathe fresh air and enjoy some of the sunlight ... I'm just excited to get back into life in the real world again," he said in a phone interview.
