Washington: Like many others, Indo-Canadian comedian Lilly Singh also fell prey to COVID-19.On Tuesday, Lilly took to Instagram and informed her followers about her diagnosis. She posted a video in which she can be seen talking about how challenging it has become for her to battle COVID-19, especially the symptom of fatigue caused by the deadly virus.
“For anyone else who’s had COVID-19 I need to know when does fatigue go away. For me the hardest part of this right now is the fatigue. If I get up to do anything in five minutes I feel like I have ran a full marathon,” she said in the clip.
However, she did not mention when she actually contracted the disease. In another post, she wished her dog a happy birthday and stated that no amount of COVID-19 can stop her from being an “overbearing Desi mom.”
Lilly rose to fame with her YouTube channel ‘Superwoman’.
Comedian Jimmy Fallon, on Monday night, revealed that he had tested positive for COVID-19 earlier, over the holiday break. Taking to his Instagram handle, the TV host said that he tested positive on the first day of The Tonight Show’s holiday break.
“Hey guys, on the first day of our holiday break I tested positive for Covid. I was vaccinated and boostered which made me lucky enough to only have mild symptoms. Thank you to the doctors and nurses who work so hard around the clock to get everyone vaxxed,” Fallon captioned a picture of him sitting in an isolated room.
“Thank you to NBC for taking the testing protocols so seriously and doing a great job – and also thanks for putting me in the “What ‘chu talkin’ about Willis?” isolation room when they told me the news,” he added. The host has since recovered in time for The Tonight Show’s Monday return from break, as per The Hollywood Reporter.
