 Kathy Griffin says that she is currently in a novel coronavirus (COVID-19) “isolation ward room” after exhibiting symptoms for the contagious respiratory virus.

The comedian, 59, shared a selfie from the room on Instagram on Wednesday, calling out Donald Trump in the process for a lack of available COVID-19 tests in the United States.

The article goes on to state the following:

Griffin continued to say in her caption that she was unable to get tested, despite exhibiting symptoms, because of restrictions set by the Centers for Disease Control.

Griffin wrote:

“He’s lying. I was sent to the #COVID19 isolation ward room in a major hospital ER from a separate urgent care facility after showing UNBEARABLY PAINFUL symptoms.

“The hospital couldn’t test me for #coronavirus because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions.”

She was responding to a recent tweet from President Donald J. Trump about the U.S. testing process.

“Just reported that the United States has done far more ‘testing’ than any other nation, by far!” Trump tweeted. “In fact, over an eight day span, the United States now does more testing than what South Korea (which has been a very successful tester) does over an eight week span. Great job!”
