Great news for the official face of Bravo! After testing positive for Corona, Andy Cohen is back to work after recovering from the horrific virus.
Taking to his Instagram, Andy was happy to report that he was back to work and feeling better stating:
Happy to report I’m feeling better and am returning to @radioandysxm this morning, and will try to end your day with a smile when we begin WWHL@Home tonight featuring @neneleakes @lisarinna @mrjerryo! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE ON THE FRONT LINES OF COVID-19!
Taking it one step further, Andy detailed his experience at, where else but Radio Andy, describing his symptoms and his time in quarantine stating:
“It took about 10 or 11 days, I would say, to work through my system. It takes a bit to get your energy back.”
Symptoms he dealt with included, “fever, chest tightness, a cough, chills, loss of taste and appetite, and a lot of aches and pains in the body.”
While Andy admitted it was easy to freak out, he took Tylenol, had plenty of Vitamin-C and relied on a pulse oximeter to help calm his nerves when he felt it may be more serious than it was. Andy shared this helpful over the counter device, “measures how much oxygen you’re getting to your lungs. 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.’”
Andy passed the time by watching “Game of Thrones Tiger King and Season 3 of The Handmaid’s Tale” and would speak to his family over FaceTime every night. Naturally, the worst part of being hit with the virus was being quarantined which prevented him from seeing his son Benjamin. Listen to Andy’s full interview in the clip below:
So happy that Andy is feeling better and that he’s healthy enough to be back at work. NYC is the hardest-hit area in the US and we are sending our thoughts and prayers to the Big Apple and anyone who has been affected.
