Neil Patrick Harris reveals he and his family had coronavirus earlier this year: ‘I thought I had the flu’
Neil Patrick Harris opened up on NBC’s The Today Show earlier today about his experience with the novel coronavirus.
The Emmy and Tony award winner said he and his family — including husband David Burtka and 9-year-old twins Gideon and Harper — contracted COVID-19 earlier this year.
Harris and his family have since recovered but Harris described the ordeal as “not pleasant” when recalling some of his symptoms.
“It happened very early [in the pandemic], like late March, early April,” he shared. “We were doing our best before, and I thought I had the flu, and I didn’t want to be paranoid about it. And then I lost my sense of taste and smell, which was a big indicator, so we holed up.”
