On the Tuesday episode of his podcastLife Is Short with Justin Long, the actor said he and his brother Christian contracted coronavirus after the latter's girlfriend returned from a work trip."We should tell everyone that you actually have corona. You think you do. I might have it as well,” Long said.
“I do have it. We’re not just being paranoid," his brother responded.After returning from a work trip, Christian's girlfriend Maggie developed a fever and dry cough, "all the things that they're saying people have with COVID," Long noted.
Fortunately, Christian said she's feeling better after 12 days of recovery and her fever is gone.“The weird thing is, the day after she came down with symptoms, a couple of weeks ago, Justin and I came down with very mild versions of the exact same symptoms,” Christian said.
They felt "achiness, some nausea, headaches, and then the tightness in the chests." Long added, "But then the strangest thing happened, which we then read was typical of this disease ... Maggie and Christian lost their sense of taste and smell."
The brothers weren't able to get tested as they weren't considered "high-enough risk."“As many of you know, you have to be in a high-risk group, which is older people and people with compromised immune systems, or it has to be severe enough in your system,” he explained.
They are both still taking precautions and quarantining, especially since their parents are in their 70s and 80s. Read more: Entertainment Weekly »
