Jim Parsons Says His COVID-19 Battle Lasted 'A Month to Six Weeks'

Jim Parsons is opening up about his battle with coronavirus.

While promoting his Netflix movie The Boys in the Band, the 47-year-old actor talked about how he and husband Todd Spiewak dealt with the virus.

“Apparently we aren’t the kind – luckily – that it lingered with, nor did we have major, major cases, I’d say it was mild to medium, but it was a lingering thing,” Jim shared. “It wasn’t like I kept saying everyone was like, they said quarantine for 14 days. If you think you have it, what was like that thing stuck around for a month to six weeks.”

“And we didn’t even lose our sense of smell and taste until after two weeks, it was like one day I felt good enough to clean the house after we had been sick,” Jim continued. “I, how I’ll straighten up and I lit candles and that’s how I figured out it was gone. Cause I was like, I don’t smell those at all. And then I realized I can’t smell anything.”
