Jim Parsons reveals COVID diagnosis: “It defied descriptions”

[My husband Todd] and I both had [COVID-19] early on. It was like the middle of March. We thought we had colds. And then it seemed less likely, and then finally we lost our sense of smell and taste. It defied the descriptions for me. I didn’t realize how completely taste and smell could be gone. When you’re in quarantine, and there’s really nothing to do but eat, oh, my God that was brutal. I ate everything, but I just didn’t taste it. Definition of wasted calories!”— Jim Parsons to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show
