After it first emerged in the Wuhan, Hubei, province in China in 2019, the novel coronavirus has made its way around the world and the World Health Organization has reported that more than 43,800,000 people have contracted coronavirus so far — including some of your favorite celebrities.
Khloe Kardashian is the latest celeb to reveal her experience with COVID-19. She confirmed the news during a newly released clip to promote the Thursday, October 29, Keeping Up With the Kardashians episode.
“Just found out that I do have corona,” she said, with a hoarse voice. “I have been in my room. It’s gonna be fine, but it was really bad for a couple days.”
When detailing her symptoms, the KUWTK star said she experienced “vomiting,” “shaking,” both “hot and then cold” flashes and “the craziest headache.”
“I wouldn’t say it was a migraine. The coughing, my chest would burn when I would cough,” she explained. “Let me tell you, that s–t is real. But, we’re all gonna get through this. Praying if we all follow orders, we’re all gonna be OK. May God bless us all.”
Since the disease started to spread, medical professionals have called for “social distancing” to prevent further spreading of the illness, which is defined as “trying to keep yourself away from other people, especially large crowds.” Because of this many events, concerts, award shows, conventions and festivals have been canceled, including all Broadway plays and sports games. Not to mention that for the first time since September 11, 2001, every Disney theme park and cruise line worldwide was shut down due to the disease. People are urged to stay indoors, avoid public places and isolate themselves during this time. The virus has resulted in more than 1,100,000 deaths and has infected people in 217 countries. 32,200,000 people have recovered.
