Popular TV host Ellen DeGeneres tested positive for COVID-19 in December 2020, and after she healed, the host is all set to return to the show. In a preview video of her Wednesday’s episode, the host spoke about what she learnt as she recovered from the Novel Coronavirus. In the preview, she jokingly mentioned about things being negative and wanted to talk about positive and followed by mentioning about COVID-19. She assured her fans that she is fine and now and all clean, as she got ready to shoot the show.
She said, "Obviously, there's a lot of negative things going on, so I want to talk about something positive, my COVID test. I'm fine now, I'm all good. Everything's clear." She recalled the times when the news was broken to her of being tested positive for the Novel Coronavirus. As soon as the news was out, everyone present around her ran away as they were scared and did not come back, also the way she narrated about that particular day, one can quickly imagine the scenario.
She adds, "I was getting ready to tape the show that you were going to be here for, and I was in hair and makeup, getting my face powdered and my extensions put in and then my assistant, Craig, walks in and says, 'You've tested positive for COVID. And then everyone around me ran away. It's funny, people just really get scared. Some have not come back since."
Speaking about maintaining distance from her wife Portia de Rossi, Portia made her sleep in a different room as she wanted to sleep in a race car bed all alone. "I had to quarantine, and Portia made me sleep in a different room on a different bed because she wanted the race car bed all to herself," she added.

Ellen sharing about the symptoms she had before she was tested positive for COVID-19 said, "felt like I'd cracked a rib. It's the only symptom I had. I didn't have a headache. I didn't have a fever. I didn't lose my sense of taste, although I did wear Crocs with socks for a day, so you be the judge."
Being unaware of how she contracted this deadly virus, she said, "The weird thing is, I don't know where I got it. I still don't know where I got it. I wear a mask. I wash my hands. I only licked three or four-door handles. It's a mystery to me." ALSO READ: Ellen DeGeneres Reveals She Has Tested Positive For COVID-19, But Is ‘Feeling Fine Right Now’
