Succession's Brian Cox Reveals He Had Coronavirus, But Didn't Even Know It

Brian Cox is opening up about how he contracted the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and he didn’t even know he had it until much later.

The 74-year-old Succession actor says he didn’t feel “anything” and didn’t know he had the virus until he tested positive for antibodies. So many people don’t experience symptoms of the virus, but still can spread it to others, so it’s important to wear masks and continue social distancing.

“I’m a diabetic, and I went from my usual bloods that I usually have between months,” Brian said on an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden. “I went there, and they took my bloods, and they took the COVID test. Then my doctor called me and said, ‘Oh, congratulations. You’ve had it.’”

Brian says he never had any symptoms of the virus, but he does remember being sick in December while in London.

“I remember I directed a play with my wife in London in December,” he said. “And I remember coming here, and for about four days, I had these sneezing attacks. Just sneezing.”

He added, “The doctor told me that three of our patients had also these sneezing attacks, and that is an unknown symptom of COVID.”
