Todd Chrisley of USA Network's hit series Chrisley Knows Best is one of the latest to fall victim to the powerful virus. The hilarious father and husband fell so ill, in fact, that for days he was hospitalized with intense symptoms. He's recovering now and is in much better health, but it's yet another reminder of the power of this virus. 

Check it out ahead.

Todd Chrisley had been practicing social distancing like the rest of us.

And he's been documenting it on social media, like a distanced visit to his mother. "You have to listen close die to the pressure washing of germs , but today was food delivery to @nannyfayechrisley , Julie and savannah cooked for her and then I practiced social distancing by leaving it on her front Porch , leave it up to my mother to come to the door with gloves on to pick it up and sanitize before she opens it," he posted to Instagram.

However, he unfortunately fell victim to the highly contagious virus.

On Wednesday’s episode of his Chrisley Confessions podcast, he revealed that not only did he test positive for the virus, but he was also hospitalized. "It has been the sickest that I have ever been in the 52 years I’ve been on this earth,” he said. “I cannot ever tell you a time in my life where I have ever been as sick as what I had been with the Coronavirus. This is serious. This is something that we’ve been dealing with for the past few weeks.”

His wife also gave her feedback about the scary ordeal. 

“Todd and I have been together for 25 years. I have never in 25 years seen him as sick as what he was in the past few weeks," she said. “If you are doubting or have not been affected by corona personally … you need to know that this is serious. There are people who are dying and we have to take it seriously. We have to practice social distancing and we have to stay in if at all possible.”

Chrisley said he is successfully recovering and thankful for his health.
