Kathy Griffin Says She Can’t Get Coronavirus Test Despite Being Hospitalized With ‘Unbearably Painful’ Symptoms

Kathy Griffin says she hasn’t been able to get tested for the coronavirus despite her “unbearably painful symptoms.”

The 59-year-old comedian revealed on Twitter Wednesday that she’s been sent to a “COVID-19 isolation ward in a major hospital ER” after visiting an urgent care facility. She shared a picture of herself laying in a hospital bed wearing a mask, although it’s unclear when the photo was taken.

Despite experiencing symptoms consistent with the coronavirus, Griffin said her attempts to get tested have been unsuccessful.

“The hospital couldn’t test me for #coronavirus because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions,” Griffin added, citing the vice president.

USA TODAY has reached out to Griffin’s rep for comment.
