What’s It Like to Have COVID-19? Andy Cohen Answers

We’re so happy that Andy Cohen is feeling better after testing positive for COVID-19. Now, the talk show host is opening up about what it was like.

“It took about 10 or 11 days, I would say, to work through my system,” he said on SiriusXM’s Andy Cohen Live yesterday. “It takes a bit to get your energy back.”

Andy added that his symptoms consisted of a fever, chest tightness, a cough, chills, loss of taste and appetite, and “a lot of aches and pains in the body.”

He was also on a pulse oximeter, a device that monitors your lung activity.

“It measures how much oxygen you’re getting to your lungs,” he said. “My doctor told me what the reading would be in case it would be a cause for alarm. You could scare yourself and think, ‘Oh my God, my lungs don’t feel right,’ but you could use this pulse oximeter and see, ‘OK, well actually, you’re fine. You’re within the range.’”

Of course, he survived the quarantine watching shows like Game of Thrones, Tiger King and Season 3 of The Handmaid’s Tale.

“I am so happy to be feeling good, and this is the first bit of normalcy that I’ve had in some time, so it’s great to be back with my family here,” he added. “I am feeling back and better than ever.”

We’re so happy you’re back, Andy.
