The Bachelor's Colton Underwood Tests Positive for Coronavirus, Reveals How Tough the Illness Is For Him

Colton Underwood, one of the former stars of The Bachelor, has revealed that he tested positive for coronavirus.

The 28-year-old reality star and former football player said he started to feel symptoms a few days ago and he just received his test results.

“I want to let you guys know: I’m 28, I consider myself pretty healthy, I work out regularly, I eat healthy, and I became symptomatic a few days ago, got my test results back today, and they are positive,” Colton said in a video on Instagram.

Colton came forward with his diagnosis to make sure his younger fans take the virus seriously.

“It’s been kicking my ass, just to put it pretty bluntly,” Colton said. “The main thing is I can’t even walk up a flight of stairs without being out of breath or go to the bathroom without having to sit down because I’m exhausted.”

“I’m doing okay, I’m at Cassie’s family’s house in Huntington [Beach, California], so I’m fortunate to have them. Unfortunately that means we’re all in this together, at this point. So we’ll keep you posted, but we’re in good spirits,” Colton said in the video.

Colton ended the video by encouraging fans to stay at home to do their part in stopping the spread of the virus.
