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.”

In the UK, a loss of or change to your sense of taste and smell is listed as one of the main symptoms of coronavirus.

Neil is not the only famous face to have shared their experience with the virus

Earlier this month, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson revealed that his entire family tested positive for coronavirus on Instagram.

The 48-year-old actor said that contracting the virus was “a real kick in the gut” at the time.

The family “isolated” themselves as Dwayne and his wife Lauren Hashian, 35, had “a rough go.”

He added: “We got through it as a family. We’re stronger, we’re better and we did it together.”

Other stars that have had the virus Tom Hanks, Idris Elba and Pink.
