The novel coronavirus disease is not very selective with whom it infects and this week television personality Sharon Osbourne revealed she had gotten the virus before giving an update on her health.


“The Talk’s” Sharon Osbourne, 68, took to Twitter to reveal the news that she’d tested positive for the novel coronavirus disease. The star shared how she’d handled her diagnosis, writing:

“After a brief hospitalization, I’m now recuperating at a location away from Ozzy.”

The talk show co-host is married to rock star Ozzy Osbourne, 72. In the update, she also revealed how the Black Sabbath lead singer had luckily tested negative for COVID-19.

Fortunately, Sharon won’t have to take time off work as “The Talk” is currently on a scheduled hiatus. She concluded her short announcement by urging people to stay healthy and safe.


The television personality’s husband is at a higher risk of having much more serious complications with the virus if he catches it. Ozzy has known health issues that make him vulnerable to the disease.

Another “The Talk” co-host who contracted the virus recently is Carrie Ann Inaba. Last week Thursday the star revealed her positive status through a video post on her Instagram account.


The “Dancing with the Stars” judge shared how she was battling a fever, had "lots of aches and pains," and a bad cough. Just like her co-host, Inaba urged her fans to keep following novel coronavirus disease safety protocols.

She also noted that she was taking good care of herself and encouraged her fans not to worry about her. The star concluded her message by promising to keep her followers updated about her health.


Sharon isn’t the only one in her family who’s had to battle health scares. In the past, her daughter, Kelly Osbourne admitted that she’d gotten bitten by a poisonous spider for the second time.

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson kept fans updated on their health frequently and they’ve both since recovered.

The insect bit the television personality on her neck, leading her to rush to get medical treatment. In an Instagram post, she shared a photo of several vials of blood that were taken from her after the incident.


One of the very first celebrities who confessed to testing positive was Tom Hanks. On March 11, 2020, the actor revealed on social media that he’d caught the virus along with his wife Rita Wilson.

The couple kept fans updated on their health frequently and they’ve both since recovered. They’ve become quite vocal about staying safe and following health protocols in order to curb the spread.
