Tiffany Haddish Says She Got Tested For Coronavirus This Many Times During Interview With Dr. Fauci

Tiffany Haddish is opening up about how she learned she was positive for COVID-19 coronavirus.

The 40-year-old actress was on a video call with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of the US’s task force, when she revealed she had been positive for the virus.

“I wasn’t in direct contact with them, but they sent all of us home and we stopped the movie,” she remembered of the first time she went to get a test. “Then they suggested that I go get tested. I went and got tested, and I got the results back like two days later. They said I didn’t have the coronavirus.”

Tiffany continues, “Then, somebody else I know that was around like a week before, they contracted the coronavirus, and so I went and got tested again. Mind you, these tests are expensive as all outdoors — it was like $550. Which really made me upset because I was trying to buy some shoes. Anyways, I paid for the tests. Get the tests the second time. I’m not feeling any symptoms or anything, and it comes back like two days later, and they said I did have the coronavirus.”

She admitted that she didn’t really feel any kind of symptoms even through the test was positive. Tiffany quarantined as a precaution.

“I stayed away from everybody, just stayed in my house, me and my dogs, and I practiced learning how to do the splits. And now I can do the splits,” she joked. “Then I went and tested again, didn’t have the virus, and then I got tested for antibodies, they said I had antibodies.”

Tiffany adds, “That was like three months ago…and I’ve been tested 12 times now since, 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.”
