Jon Gosselin Says He Was Hospitalized with 'Really Bad' Case of COVID-19

Jon Gosselin is detailing his very scary battle with coronavirus.

During a new episode of The Dr. Oz Show, the 43-year-old former reality star revealed he was almost put on a ventilator while in the hospital battling the virus.

“I had a really bad COVID pneumonia based upon my numbers,” Jon said, while recovering at home. “Now, what’s interesting is I didn’t feel it. I didn’t feel sick and I didn’t feel pain … but when you went to move or do anything and you felt so weak and you wanted to pass out, it was really scary.”

He continued, “If my urinals were full, I had to stand up and use the bathroom, I would fear it because I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I’m going to pass out. I can’t breathe.’ I called the nurse and I felt guilty calling the nurse all the time. Like, ‘Can you just help me get this? Can you help me do that?’ Everything, you feel like an invalid.”

Jon said that it was his health’s quick decline that really took him by surprise.

“You go from perfectly healthy one week to you can’t do anything the next week,” Jon said. “It was so weird. It’s still weird now.”

Jon Gosselin‘s full interview on The Dr. Oz Show airs on Thursday, January 14.
