Girls Trip actress, Tiffany Haddish, in a video posted on her YouTube page has revealed that she tested positive for COVID-19.
The actress and comedian revealed that she tested positive for COVID-19 during an interview with the leading expert on infectious diseases in the U.S, Dr. Anthony Fauci.
“I was working on a movie and someone in the movie contracted coronavirus,” Haddish told Fauci. “I was not in direct contact with them. But they sent all of us home, we stopped the movie. They suggested I go get tested. I got tested, got the results back two days later, they said I didn’t have the coronavirus.”
However, the actress went for a test the second time after a close friend of hers tested positive to the virus.
“Get the tests the second time,” she said. “I’m not feeling any symptoms or anything, and it comes back like two days later, and they said I did have the coronavirus.”
Haddish went into self-quarantine after the result came back positive.
She said: “Then I went and tested again, didn’t have the virus, and then I got tested for antibodies, they said I had antibodies, That was three months ago. I’ve been tested 12 times now because I’ve been working and everything. Then I get tested again, no virus, and then I had them test me for antibodies again, and then they said I don’t have any antibodies, So I think I’m superhuman.”
During their chat, Fauci and Haddish also discussed coronavirus vaccine efforts, the ways the virus specifically affects the African American community, ways people can protect themselves, and more.
