On the heels of her husband testing positive for coronavirus, Ali Wentworth is celebrating her recovery from the deadly virus after a 16-day isolation.

“I am grateful for my health,” Wentworth, 55, wrote on Monday alongside a video of herself coming down the stairs while Destiny Child’s “Survivor” plays in the background. “It was a brutal and scary time. But I am one of the lucky ones. And as I continue to recover I am struck by what has become the dehumanization of this plague. People are dying. People are suffering. People are hungry. People are scared. We have to shed all ideological, religious, social, economic barriers and grabbed [sic] each other’s hands and move forward united. As people.”

The note continued, “We can isolate to help others, particularly the incredible health workers and all the courageous and selfless people on the frontlines, but that does not mean we should isolate our hearts. (I know my daughters are screaming that this is so cringeworthy).”

News of her recovery comes on the same day that her husband, George Stephanopoulos, 59, announced that he tested positive over the weekend. He told his “Good Morning America” co-hosts on Monday that because of Wentworth’s diagnosis, it’s not really a surprise, but for the most part, has been asymptomatic.

“I’ve never had a fever, never had chills, never had a headache, never had cough, never had shortness of breath,” he said.

Wentworth, who’s been married to Stephanopoulos since 2001, announced on social media that she had the virus on April 1. She wasn’t as lucky with the symptoms, writing that she was suffering from “high fever. Horrific body aches.. Heavy chest. I’m quarantined from my family. This is pure misery #stayhome”

Wentworth had been quarantined in a room during her recovery, separated from Stephanopoulos and their two teenage daughters, 17-year-old Elliott and 14-year-old Harper.

The comic ended her note on Monday saying she was grateful to be back to normal, except for when it comes to doing laundry and dishes again.
