Like so many Americans and millions of people around the world, the hosts of "The Talk" have unfortunately come face-to-face with COVID-19 and the dire consequences of the pandemic.

Joining "The Talk" virtually from her home, Inaba spoke about the fear she had felt when she was diagnosed and that she had held on to the love and support fans and friends had demonstrated. She said:
"I was thinking a lot about you Amanda, actually, throughout this time. You guys reached out and I appreciate that you reached out."
Inaba revealed that she had manifested all the classic symptoms of COVID-19 including fever, cough, aches and pains, and overwhelming tiredness. Thankfully, Inaba is well on the road to recovery.
Osbourne confessed that even though she is over the worse of it, she is still feeling very tired and tends to fall asleep easily.
She is, nonetheless, strictly following safety protocols to keep herself and those around her safe and free from infection. Inaba called to people to wear masks and wash their hands regularly.
SHARON OSBOURNE HOSPITALIZED
Osbourne revealed that she had contracted the new strain of the COVID-19 virus and had to be hospitalized briefly. Fortunately, her husband had tested negative, but that meant she had to isolate herself from her family.
Osbourne confessed that even though she is over the worse of it, she is still feeling very tired and tends to fall asleep easily, and still has to recover her sense of taste and smell.
By sharing their experiences with COVID-19, the co-hosts of "The Talk" hope to encourage their viewers to follow the safety protocols and prevent the further spread of a disease that has already claimed so many lives.
