Khloé Kardashian is detailing her bout with COVID-19 — including the "heart-wrenching" time quarantining away from her daughter.
On Thursday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the reality star, 36, looked back on her "super scary" experience after testing positive for the coronavirus back in March. The diagnosis and the family's reaction will unfold on the current season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
"It was so incredibly scary," Kardashian told host Ellen DeGeneres. "I mean, it still is scary, but especially then when the whole world was shutting down and we didn't have really any information or the information we had changed every single day."
Recounting her symptoms, Kardashian said she was "really sick" and explained she wore a mask and gloves as a precaution when she sensed herself becoming ill.
"I felt really quickly on that I was getting sick with something. And I remember I just wore a mask [and] I remember wearing gloves just because it was speculation all about COVID but no one really knew," she said. "We all were like there's no way I could have COVID. I still was just very diligent, wearing masks, and we got tested, the whole family got tested, and my results were positive."

The reality star added that her family members were "alarmed" but everyone else's test results came back negative. Kardashian went on to say that being apart from her 2-year-old daughter True proved to be the most challenging part.
"I just was quarantined in my room for like 16 days. We had to wait until I had negative test results for me to leave, and that was the hardest part," she recalled. "I mean, I don't care how beautiful of a place you have, being taken away from your child for that long, because I couldn't be around my daughter, that was the most heart-wrenching thing."
In a sneak peek of Thursday's KUWTK episode that reveals Kardashian's coronavirus diagnosis, the star shares what kinds of symptoms she experienced while sick.
"Vomiting and shaking, and hot and then cold. I suffer from migraines, but this was the craziest headache, I wouldn't say it was a migraine. The coughing in my chest would burn … and my throat is still not fully recovered, clearly."
"Let me tell you, that s— is real," she adds in the clip. "But we're all going to get through this. Praying if we follow orders and listen we're all going to be okay. May god bless us all."
Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on E!
