Khloé Kardashian Shared an Update After Testing Positive for COVID-19 Again

Khloé Kardashian tested positive for COVID-19—for the second time. And, this time around, her young daughter True also got the virus. A few days after testing positive, Kardashian shared an update with her followers on Instagram. 

“I am so over this!! #CovidSucks,” the Good American founder wrote in the Instagram caption. The relatable sentiment appeared alongside a photo of Kardashian resting her chin in her hand while sitting atop a giant heart and wearing knee-high black boots.

On October 29, 2021, Kardashian revealed on Twitter that she and True both tested positive recently. She also shared that she is vaccinated, making her COVID-19 case a rare breakthrough infection. And while the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) just recommended the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for kids ages five and up, three-year-old True is still too young to be vaccinated. 

“Hi guys I wanted to let you know True and I tested positive for Covid. I’ve had to cancel several commitments and I’m sorry I won’t be able to make those happen,” Kardashian tweeted over the past weekend. “Luckily I have been vaccinated so all will be ok. We will be over here in quarantine and following current guidelines.”

During her previous bout of COVID-19, which was revealed in an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, she experienced a burning cough, “vomiting, and shaking, and hot and then cold,” Kardashian said on the show. “This virus has hit me like a ton of bricks, and it’s been really scary… It was really bad for a couple days.” 

Kardashian also dealt with a common but troublesome long-term side effect: telogen effluvium, a type of temporary hair loss. In fact, both Alyssa Milano and Drake have also spoken publicly about losing hair thanks to COVID-19 infections. Luckily, this type of stress-induced hair loss—technically a type of hair shedding—typically resolves on its own within months.

After such an unpleasant experience the first time around, getting COVID-19 again is hardly a welcome experience. But even if being fully vaccinated doesn’t always prevent the infection, it is still highly effective at preventing severe complications—some of which require hospitalization—as well as death due to the disease.
