Khloé Kardashian is revealing for the first time that she tested positive for COVID-19 in the early days of the pandemic.

The reality TV star is seen bedridden in a promotional clip for E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” released this week, saying to the camera, “Just found out that I do have corona.”

“I’ve been in my room. It’s gonna be fine, but it was really bad for a couple of days: vomiting, and shaking, and hot and then cold,” Kardashian, 36, says in a hoarse voice.

“Let me tell you,” she says, “that shit is real.”

“We’re all going to get through this,” Kardashian says in the video from March. “Praying if we follow orders and listen, we’re all going to be OK.”

Kardashian isn’t the only member of her famous family who announced testing positive for the coronavirus. Kanye West, who’s married to her sister, Kim Kardashian West, said in an interview with Forbes published in July that he had COVID-19 months earlier.

West, who launched a long-shot 2020 White House bid under the Birthday Party earlier this year, said following his February coronavirus diagnosis he experienced “chills” and “shaking in the bed.”

Khloé Kardashian made headlines this week after appearing in photos with her family during a trip to a private island for Kardashian West’s 40th birthday. 

While Kardashian West noted that she asked her “inner circle” to quarantine and undergo “multiple health screens” ahead of the trip, many social media users mocked the getaway as COVID-19 cases spiked across the United States.
