Warning! The following contains spoilers for the Keeping Up with the Kardashians episode "Things Fall Apart: COVID-19". Read at your own risk!
The world is well familiar with COVID-19 at this point, but in the latest episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the novel coronavirus was still a relatively new term to those in America. The Kardashians got an up-close and personal look at the virus while they were in lockdown when Kanye West and Khloé Kardashian both tested positive.
While cameras weren't on Kanye and his experience in the latest episode, viewers did get to see the beginning and mid-point of Khloé's battle with COVID. After a particularly bad couple of days in quarantine, Khloé used her iPhone to talk about the worst symptoms she experienced in her fight against the virus to that point.
It was really bad for a couple days. [I was] vomitting and shaking, hot and then cold. And I suffer from migraines, but this was the craziest headache I wouldn't say it was a migraine. The coughing, my chest would burn when I coughed. My throat is still not fully recovered clearly. Let me tell you, that shit is real.
Khloé Kardashian was lucky enough that she decided to quarantine out of precaution prior to things getting really bad, which meant she didn't infect her family or her daughter True. While she was holed up in her room, Tristan Thompson stayed in the rest of her house with True and delivered meals to her door when necessary. Khloé was thankful that her child's father was available to help out with her daughter, as well as be there for her during the trying time. For anyone wondering, no, the two do not appear to be back together.
Khloé Kardashian's battle with COVID was shown quite a bit during Keeping Up with the Kardashians, as fans saw her toss, turn, and struggle in bed. Khloé didn't look to be in great shape for a chunk of it, but by the time this video was taken appeared to be finally bouncing back from the worst of it.
As many of the Kardashians noted in the episode, it was a miracle that only Khloé Kardashian and Kanye West had been the only ones to contract COVID-19 at that time. Khloé had been around many of her sisters and mother prior to her diagnosis but was wearing a mask as a precaution out of fear of getting sick. Kim Kardashian was even hanging out in Khloé's room when she was first tested, so it really is a wonder the virus didn't impact more of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians clan than it did.
