Kathy Griffin Hospitalized in Coronavirus Ward With 'Unbearably Painful Symptoms'

March 25, 2020

Kathy Griffin has been hospitalized after suffering “unbearably painful symptoms,” but disclosed she can’t get tested for coronavirus.

The 59-year-old revealed the news on Twitter and Instagram and noted that she has been placed in a “COVID-19 isolation ward.”

Griffin shared images from the hospital including a shot of herself laying down wearing a mask.

The comedian began her post by firing back at President Trump’s tweet claiming the United States has done more testing for coronavirus than any other nation.

“‪He’s lying,” Griffin captioned the post. “ I was sent to the #COVID19 isolation ward room in a major hospital ER from a separate urgent care facility after showing UNBEARABLY PAINFUL symptoms.”

She added, “The hospital couldn’t test me for #coronavirus because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions. #TESTTESTTEST."

It is unclear where exactly the photos were taken or if she is still hospitalized.

Many people have complained about having a hard time getting a coronavirus test. After falling ill, supermodel Heidi Klum failed to get her hands on a test on two occasions. She has since been tested and revealed the results came back negative.

Even prior to her health issues, Griffin has been going through a difficult time as her mother Maggie recently passed away at the age of 99 after a long battle with dementia.

“My Mom, the one and only, Maggie Griffin, passed away today,” Griffin captioned posts on Twitter and Instagram on March 17th. “I am gutted. She was my best friend. She was my family.”

"I’m shaking. I won’t ever be prepared. Her point of view. So unique. We just GOT each other," Griffin continued. "I’m so grateful you got to be part of her life. You loved her. I know it. She knew it. She’s irreplaceable."
