The Chinese-American star revealed on his Weibo account on August 7 that he had been infected with COVID-19 and was being treated in Shanghai.

"I will sleep well tonight!" he wrote on Weibo on Thursday.
Lin, who was vaccinated against COVID-19 in the United States, tested positive on the third day of the mandatory quarantine following his arrival in Shanghai from San Francisco.
During his hospital stay, Lin posted videos and photos on social media regularly, saying he was confident of fighting the illness and how grateful and touched he was by the meticulous care of the medical staff.
Lin also designed a T-shirt in collaboration with his sponsor, sports brand Xtep, for media professionals and said that he and Xtep will donate to a rural medical aid station in appreciation for Chinese medical workers' diligent work and dedication during the pandemic.
