While Andy was on the mend, he had to stay away in isolation from his son, friends, and family. He described this as one of the toughest parts of his recovery. In his video the "Love Connection," alum said:

"My chest, my symptoms were fever tightness in my chest, a cough very very itchy lots of aches and pains in my body."

The experience was most definitely scary and challenging for the talk show host. Andy revealed that he felt as though he had to recuperate quietly before he could come back to be with his fans devotedly.

Andy is feeling a lot better and is ready to get back to work.

 Among his symptoms were lots of chills and also the loss of smell and appetite. Cohen gave a bit of advice to listeners, saying that it was essential to get a pulse oximeter.

He explained what it did — the oximeter would not only measure pulse but also determine the amount of oxygen that was getting into the lungs.

Seeing as the disease is majorly a respiratory disease, this device would be useful in tracking health.

Concluding his protip, Cohen also disclosed that his doctors had given him the range within which his oximeter should read, which would keep him from panicking.

In an episode of a Sirius XM show, "Andy Cohen Live," the father of one revealed that he was feeling much better after he tested positive for Coronavirus on March 20. And his recovery was a relief to fans and friends. Describing the ordeal, he said:

"It took 10 or 11 days to work through my system... I took a lot of tiny Tylenol lots of vitamin c and liquids."

The 51-year-old revealed that he was feeling a lot better and was ready to go back to work. When in isolation, he had to stay away from his son, Benjamin Allen, for over a week. 

The proud father welcomed his baby boy in February 2019. Little Benjamin and his nanny, however, tested negative, which was a relief to the father.

Cohen's return to his field on Thursday, April 2, is not absolute as he has joined the long list of talk show hosts who have decided to work from home in light of the pandemic.

He will bring back "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen," streaming from his New York City apartment.
