The Coronavirus pandemic affected everyone this year. Whether you contracted the virus or not, we were all impacted by it in some way or another. Thousands have lost their lives to the virus till date and the world still continues to bear the brunt of the virus. Hollywood actor Neil Patrick Harris too, revealed in a recent interview that he and his family were diagnosed with the virus earlier this year.
Neil Patrick Harris, together with husband David Burtka and twins Gideon and Harper — were all diagnosed with the coronavirus earlier this year, but have now recovered and are doing better. According to Harris, he began experiencing symptoms in late March, and became concerned when he lost his sense of taste and smell.
“We feel great,” he said. “It happened very early (in the pandemic), like late March, early April. We were doing our best before, and I thought I had the flu, and I didn’t want to be paranoid about it. And then I lost my sense of taste and smell, which was a big indicator, so we holed up,” he was quoted as saying by a leading entertainment portal.
The American Reunion actor spoke about the whole experience and the ordeal the family went through as a whole. “We want to make sure everyone’s doing their best to slow this down in every way possible, for sure,” he said. A number of celebrities were affected by the virus with some Bollywood bigwigs who lost their lives to Covid-19. Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson were among the first Hollywood celebrities to publicly talk about their diagnosis. Bollywood actors, Amitabh Bachchan and his family as well as Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora also tested positive for the virus. They have all however reported that they are doing well and are recovering.
