Comedian D.L. Hughely just announced that he has tested positive for the coronavirus COVID-19 after he collapsed while doing a show. He Posted a video on instagram explaning the situation.

He said the positive result came after a battery of tests were performed when he was taken to Nashville’s Saint Thomas Hospital Friday night after his passing out on stage.

“I was what they call asymptomatic,” “I didn’t have flu-like symptoms, I didn’t have shortness of breath, I didn’t have difficulty breathing, I didn’t have a cough, I didn’t have a low grade fever. I still don’t have a fever. I didn’t have a loss of smell or taste, apparently I just lost consciousness.”

He added:

“Well thank you for your prayers and your well wishes and a few more of them wouldn’t hurt, so hopefully I won’t develop symptoms. Maybe this is as bad as it gets,”

He mentioned that he will be going back to his hotel room to quarantine for two weeks after leaving the Nashville’s Saint Thomas Hospital.
