Popular comedienne and TV host, Ellen DeGeneres, has disclosed what she went through during her weeks in quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19.
In the first episode of The Ellen Show in 2021, the TV host who continues to host a virtual audience at her studio said she tested positive just before the holidays but had recovered.
She detailed how she found out she had contracted COVID-19, noting it was just before she taped an episode of the show, and everyone that was with her had to run for their dear lives.

"I was in hair and makeup getting my make up done and extension put in. My assistant Craig walks in and said 'You tested positive for COVID-19'. And everyone around me ran away. I went home and had to quarantine," she said.
Ellen hilariously revealed that her wife made her sleep in a different room and for the first three days she slept for 16 hours.
On the fourth day, she woke up with back pains and her doctor prescribed pain killers for her.
After talking to several people who had the virus, the TV host realised that they also experienced back pains.
Ellen noted that was how she learned that back pains could also be a symptom of COVID-19 and that it was the only symptom she experienced.
The comedienne could not pinpoint where she had picked the virus as she always wore a mask, washed her hands then quipped "and only lick three to four door handles" hence it came as a surprise.
Ellen also sent her well wishes to those that were still hurting from the virus and prayed they get through it as well.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported Ellen DeGeneres acknowledged that mistakes were made on her show and decided to start everything afresh.
Hosting the first episode of the new season from the studio and with a virtual audience from home, Ellen admitted that she had learned about things that should have never happened.
