SHARON OSBOURNE Tests Positive For COVID-19 Days After OZZY's Diagnosis: 'The Entire Household Has It Now'

May 3, 2022

Sharon Osbourne has tested positive for COVID-19 after returning to Los Angeles to look after her husband Ozzy.

The legendary heavy metal singer contracted the virus last week, prompting Sharon to step away from her new TalkTV show to head back to the U.S.

But now Sharon has revealed that she also tested positive.

She broke the news of her diagnosis as she shared an update on Ozzy while speaking to her co-star Jeremy Kyle on Monday's (May 2) episode of "The Talk UK".

"He's doing much better," she said about Ozzy. "His temperature is now back to normal; his coughing has stopped. He's doing much better.’

When Jeremy asked if it was "just an overreaction" from Ozzy, Sharon said "a little bit," before adding, "But I've got some news to share. My daughter Kelly has it, I have it and the entire household has it now."

When asked if Ozzy will be looking after her while she's sick, Sharon added: "Maybe. We'll see. I feel okay, actually."

Sharon herself was previously diagnosed with COVID-19 in December 2020. At the time, she said she said she was hospitalized for the infectious disease for a short time and was isolating away from Ozzy, who had tested negative.

The news of Ozzy's diagnosis was shared by Sharon on April 28 on "The Talk UK". At the time, she said that she was "very worried" about him. "We've gone two years without him catching COVID and it's just Ozzy's luck he would get it now," she said.

In November 2020, prior to getting vaccinated for COVID-19, Ozzy told GQ magazine that he suffers from a respiratory disease which puts him at an increased risk of severe pneumonia and poor outcomes if he was to get infected with the novel coronavirus.

"I've got emphysema, so if I get this virus, I'm fucked," he said, referring to the type of COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) lung disease that makes it hard to breathe and gets worse over time.

Ozzy previously joked that Satan helped him ward off COVID-19 for the first two years of the pandemic. "My wife had the virus; my daughter had the virus and I never got it," he told Metal Hammer magazine last October. "Being a devil worshipper does have its good points."

In February 2021, Ozzy confirmed he received the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine, saying he "felt relieved " to get the jab.

Ozzy's COVID-19 diagnosis came just one day after Sharon told Piers Morgan during an interview on his new show "Uncensored" that Ozzy is "dying to come home" to the U.K.

"He's doing okay. He sends you his love," Sharon said of the 73-year-old musician. "He's got one more operation left to do and then he's dying to come back home."

In January 2020, Ozzy revealed he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. He has also been suffering debilitating mobility issues following a recent back and neck surgery.

Ozzy has had other health battles in recent years, including the flu, pneumonia, a life-threatening staph infection in his thumb and a nasty fall.
