The 85-year-old Yucatecan composer Armando Manzanero was intubated in a Mexico City hospital, where he is being treated for COVID-19.

His wife Laura Elena Villa assured fans that the trova legend is “stable” and attributed his breathing problems to anxiety.

In an interview with an entertainment media site, she explained that Manzanero is “being very restless” because he hates hospitals.

“Fortunately we are with doctors of a high level and he is responding to the medicine,” said Elena Villa. He has spoken to his family from his bed by telephone, she said. The phone calls may have lead to exhaustion, doctors reportedly said.

“Always vital, maestro Manzanero was at all times on his mobile phone thanking fans for the messages of solidarity he received,” she also said in a statement.

Manzanero has been hospitalized in Mexico City since Dec. 17, five days after a flight to Mérida where he toured a new museum, Casa Manzanero, that was built in his honor.

His wife would not speculate on how long his hospital stay will last.

“The doctor says that he does not give percentages, because with this disease we have learned that it is like a wheel of fortune, there are days and hours when patients are much better and then it changes,” she concluded.
