The constant rise in people being contracted with Coronavirus has indeed been alarming and the rate of public figures revealing diagnosis is also rising.
The latest to join the bandwagon is none other than American businessman and reality star Todd Chrisley. On Wednesday, Chrisley revealed revealed that he has been battling the novel coronavirus for weeks. The star, best known as the patriarch of USA's reality series Chrisley Knows Best, opened up about his experience with the illness during his "Chrisley Confessions" podcast.
"Can we talk about this bitch called corona?" he said. "I have been battling corona for three weeks. I was in the hospital for four and a half days, fever between 100 to 103 [degrees] and it has been the sickest I have ever been on this earth."
Added Chrisley, "Hopefully, I will get better every day, but as of right now, folks, I still am not clicking on all cylinders. I am probably about 70 to 75 percent of what I normally I am, but that last 25 percent is kicking my ass."
His daughter Savannah Chrisley — who also appears on Chrisley Knows Best and its spinoff Growing Up Chrisley — later took to Instagram to share her thoughts on her father's diagnosis. "I have never been so scared in my life," she wrote, adding, "When dad started getting sick I immediately started worrying... he and I are the worriers of the bunch. After a couple days mom and I talked him into going to urgent care... he went in and he was showing all symptoms of COVID-19 so they tested him."
Savannah Chrisley added that her father remained at Nashville's Vanderbilt University Medical Center for three days to recover from symptoms. Though Todd Chrisley is feeling better now, his daughter said that she at one point feared for his life.
