Abby Huntsman reveals family battle with coronavirus amid father’s campaign

Abby Huntsman and her family have been battling COVID-19, she revealed, after she and some family members received false negative tests.

The former host of “The View” – who left the show last year and moved to Utah to work on her father’s gubernatorial campaign – has been documenting the social media experience. She said in a video on Twitter: “My dad [candidate Jon Huntsman Jr.] is pretty much about 95 percent back to normal … My mom still has no taste or smell … Others in the house are currently dealing with fever, aches … Everyone in our house has experienced it completely differently. “

She said of her own time with the disease: “The best way I can describe my experience is: It feels like a giant snake that is perfectly wrapped around your body, and when the snake finishes when, where and how it wants to squeeze you. So, one hour it can be your head and you have the worst migraines of your life. And the next hour you feel totally fine. And the next hour after that, it could be your chest and shoulders struggling to breathe, or your leg muscles feel like you have never-ending charley horses. “

The Utah Republican primary is on Tuesday, and her father is now reportedly cleared by the Salt Lake County Health Department to resume campaigning after being in quarantine since June 6. Members of his campaign staff also tested positive.
