In addition, IShowSpeed himself has posted a video on his YouTube channel. In the video, the streamer tells his fans to pray for him to survive.
A few hours later, Slipz reported that IShowSpeed’s infection could progress to meningitis if not treated properly. After this message was posted by Slipz, the streamer’s fans were very worried and became quite alert. However, his fan community has been satisfied after learning that IShowSpeed does not need surgery.
Now, the streamer may be out of danger at the moment. But according to Slipz, for IShowSpeed to be in good health, he must receive good treatment. Slipz has commented that he is at great risk of worsening his health condition if he does not receive the correct treatment.
For those who do not know, meningitis is a serious medical condition that causes inflammation that leads to swelling of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord, better known as the meninges. Patients suffering from meningitis may experience severe headaches, sensitivity to light, fever, stiff neck, dizziness, nausea, and vomiting. However, it can cause convulsions and even coma in the most severe cases. On the other hand, meningitis can affect people of any age. However, infants, young children, and people with weak immune systems are most at risk.
Fan support for IShowSpeed
As mentioned above, the IShowSpeed fan community has been very concerned about the health status of their favorite streamer. After IShowSpeed commented that he was stable, many fans left their message of support on social networks.
At the moment, the streamer is in the hospital under medical observation. This means his trip to Japan will be prolonged due to his health condition. That is why he is not expected to resume his broadcasting schedule until he fully recovers and has returned to his home in the United States.
