With the COVID-19 pandemic very much present, many people treat every sickness with extra caution, while others get the chills when they fall sick in this period.

"Dog The Bounty Hunter" star Duane Chapman belongs to the latter category as he opened up to the famous doctor and television show host, Dr. Mehmet Oz, about his recent health scare.

Duane appeared on Dr. Oz's television show on Monday but was due to appear on it a couple of days before that. Dr. Oz mentioned that the bounty hunter was seriously ill, and it worried him a great deal.

The host asked Duane what happened and if he thought he had COVID-19. The bounty hunter, who tuned in to the show from his home, said it felt like he had the deadly virus as he could not get out of bed.

He noted that anybody in America who gets down with a bad cold or little flu would have the COVID-19 alarm going off in their heads, which leads to fear. Duane said he felt he had the virus and wondered how he would fare against it.

When Frane and Duane eventually tie the knot, she will become the bounty hunter's sixth wife.

Luckily for him, he did not, for which he was thankful to God. Duane also revealed he was not entirely sure he did not have the disease because he could not immediately get tested when he fell sick.

The bail bondsman explained that Monday was the second day in a row that he felt good but that when the illness hit him, he thought he was dying and was just saying his last prayers.

Dog the bounty hunter celebrated his 68th birthday on February 2, with his fiancée, Francie Frane, to whom he got engaged last year, gushing over him on social media.

Frane said she was blessed to be sharing Duane's special day with him and described him as an amazing, loving, kind, and sweet man before expressing her love for him.

When Frane and Duane eventually tie the knot, she will become the bounty hunter's sixth wife. His last marriage was with Beth Chapman and ended after she died of throat cancer in June 2019. From his previous marriages, Duane is a father of 12 kids.
