‘Bachelor’ Star Colton Underwood Thought He Just 'Had the Flu’
Bachelor star Colton Underwood tested positive for coronavirus in March.
Colton Underwood couldn't be more grateful for regaining good health after battling COVID-19. The former Bachelor star took to social media recently to reveal he's recovered from the virus. In addition, he was full of praise for his girlfriend, Cassie Randolph, for helping him heal.
The 28-year-old also announced he is working with health professionals to provide as much help as he can in their fight against the novel disease.
The reality star recently sat down with Fox News and provided updates on his health through a video conversation. Underwood revealed he is feeling back to his normal self after making a full recovery.
Colton added, "I obviously have a lot of people to thank for that, but I'm doing so much better, and I'm looking forward to just being there to support the local community and help the community here down in Orange County right now to see how I can help out."
The reality star believes the scary part is the fact that one never really knows when they catch it. He wasn't aware of what's going on, and originally when he was symptomatic, he just thought he had the flu until it quickly turned into respiratory issues. One night he woke up gasping for air, and only then he realized, 'Hey, this is more than just the flu.'
Colton displayed every symptom for COVID-19, and that's when he decided to get tested. Unsurprisingly, the result came positive a couple of days later. "So yeah, it was scary for a little bit."
From his own health battle experience, Underwood urges people to listen to medical professionals in their area. There are lots of mixed messages going about right now, but he reckons you can always trust your doctor for the most part.

The reality star concluded, "And I would just also have them take it seriously if not for them, especially the younger generation. If they're not going to do it for themselves, please do it for the elderly and the people who have preexisting conditions."
