Colton Underwood didn’t listen to the social distancing rule, and he had to pay the consequences. The former Bachelor star is now opening up about the virus on Instagram.

Colton Underwood catches COVID-19

Unfortunately, Colton Underwood recently tested positive for COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus. Just before showing symptoms, the star was ridiculed for not self quarantining like it was advised. Now, he’s paying the price and is unable to leave.

Colton shared the details in an Instagram post. Apparently, with the virus, he can only use 20% of his lungs, making it incredibly hard for him to breathe. Colton says he can’t even imagine how it would feel to have pre-existing conditions with this.

“Breathing is challenging, the best way to describe it is feeling like I only have access to 20% of my lungs. I can only imagine how people with pre-existing health conditions feel with this,” Colton wrote.

In the image he shared, he doesn’t look great. He’s laying in a dimly lit room eating food. It’s clear he’s been in bed for a while. Things are looking up for Colton though as he shared that for the first time since contracting the virus, he started to feel some improvement this morning. That comes thanks to the several things that the doctors have him on.

“I’m currently on hydroxychloroquine, Z-Pak and last night the doctor prescribed an inhaler, also. I’m hopeful that they are starting to work!” Colton continued.

Hi, just wanted to give you a health update. The last few days were rougher than I expected. The most prominent symptoms are my cough, night sweats and shortness of breathe. Breathing is challenging, the best way to describe it is feeling like I only have access to 20% of my lungs. I can only imagine how people with pre-existing health conditions feel with this. I’ve been journaling throughout this and I’ll share some of those soon. I’m currently on hydroxychloroquine, Z-Pak and last night the doctor prescribed an inhaler, also. I’m hopeful that they are starting to work! This morning was the first time that I’ve felt any real type of improvement since the beginning of this. Im hopeful that I’ve turned the corner and will be back to 100% soon. We are very lucky that all of this was manageable at home after getting the proper medicine. I’m on the third story of the Randolph’s home, isolated from the rest of the family (The Health Department called and spoke to both Cassie’s mom and me to make sure we understood timing and what to do). When they make food they make an extra plate and drop it off and have been checking on me regularly to make sure I am comfortable and breathing! They have been amazing and have been taking great care of me. Stay positive people…We got this!

Who is looking over him?

At a time like this, he probably can’t really take great care of himself. Plus, it would be bad if he stopped breathing and no one knew. Luckily, Colton says that he is well taken care of. Cassie’s family is looking out to make sure he is breathing, and bringing food to his door. Hopefully, Colton didn’t spread the virus too far before he knew he had it. Although, his beach visits before getting tested to prove to make that true.

“When they make food they make an extra plate and drop it off and have been checking on me regularly to make sure I am comfortable and breathing! They have been amazing and have been taking great care of me. Stay positive people…We got this!” Colton Concluded.
