Discussing his “unpleasant experience”, the TV star said he initially realised something was wrong when he lost his sense of taste and smell, a potential symptom of Covid-19 according to CDC guidelines.
Speaking to Today yesterday, he said: “It happened very early [in the pandemic], like late March, early April.
“We were doing our best before, and I thought I had the flu, and I didn’t want to be paranoid about it.
Adding: “And then I lost my sense of taste and smell, which was a big indicator, so we holed up.”

The How I Met Your Mother actor and his family have since recovered but added: “It was not pleasant, but we got through it.
He went on to urge people take precaution: “We want to make sure everyone’s doing their best to slow this down every way possible, for sure.”
