After days of waiting, we finally know the results of Heidi Klum’s coronavirus test. The AGT judge was tested over a week ago, and on Tuesday she shared the results in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it Instagram announcement.
The good news is that Heidi apparently tested negative for coronavirus, just like her husband Tom Kaulitz. We’re just wondering why she kept us on the edge of our seats for so long.
Heidi Klum Tests Negative For Coronavirus
On Tuesday, Heidi posted a photo of herself on Instagram in which she can be seen lying on grass with clouds overhead. She shared that it was her fourteenth day of staying home, and added the hashtag #covid_19negative.
It’s a pretty understated way to announce that she doesn’t have coronavirus, but we’re glad to hear that she’s negative. It’s especially good news considering she was in contact with co-workers at AGT when she first got sick earlier this month. We’re sure fellow judge Howie Mandel is glad to hear she doesn’t have the virus.
Heidi responded to an Instagram comment by thanking fans for checking in on her. Another fan asked how she was feeling, and she replied that she was feeling “much better.” She said she had a “bad cold” and is “trying to get over it.”
What Took Heidi So Long To Share Her Results?
Heidi Klum first showed symptoms of coronavirus (including fever and coughing) a couple of weeks ago on the set of America’s Got Talent. She left, and was replaced by guest judge Eric Stonestreet. The show eventually shut down production due to the pandemic.
At first, Heidi said she had trouble getting tested for the virus. Eventually, she and her husband Tom were able to receive the test. Heidi updated fans a few days later, saying Tom had tested negative, and she would receive her results last Thursday.
Thursday came and went, and we began to wonder if Heidi was hiding positive results. We’re not sure if the test results took longer to arrive, or if Heidi wanted to wait until she had self-isolated for two weeks to announce it. Whatever the reason, we’re glad the results were negative, and wish her a speedy recovery.
