Watch: Sharon Osbourne talks COVID effects

Sharon Osbourne is still feeling the effects of the coronavirus after testing negative multiple times.

The 68-year-old, who tested positive for COVID-19 in December, has said she feels fatigued and hasn't fully regained her sense of smell or taste.

"I'm feeling really fine now, except that I'm still really tired. I nod off at ridiculous times of the day," she told the panel on US show The Talk while speaking remotely.

"I'm good, you know I went through all the symptoms - headache, eyeache, bodyache, dizziness, sickness, all of it."

"I still can't smell very much or taste very much," the mother-of-three added, although acknowledged she was grateful for it not taking a devastating toll on her health.

"There are people who have it much worse than I got it," she said. "I think I came out very lucky. I am very lucky."

The former X Factor judge was reunited with husband Ozzy just before Christmas after she twice tested negative for the virus while isolating away from her spouse.

Announcing the diagnosis via Instagram last month, Osbourne said: "I wanted to share I've tested positive for COVID-19. After a brief hospitalization, I'm now recuperating at a location away from Ozzy (who has tested negative) while 'The Talk' is on scheduled hiatus.

“Everyone please stay safe and healthy."
