Regarding the incident, Kimmel said that he is, in fact, feeling well. He continued in his signature self-mockery that he is such a positive person that he tested positive twice, though he is double vaxxed and took the booster dose as well.
He further humored his fans by saying that his daughter brought it to him, despite telling her not to. Thus, it is not possible for him to attend the show.
After his previous recovery, Kimmel re-joined the show and told his audiences that people might notice that he was absent in the last week and that is why he is sharing the news.
With a big smile, he stated that he was alive and well, and by god’s grace he survived COVID-19. This happened on Monday and by Friday viruses realized that his body is not appropriate to place for them, so they departed.
