Dandra Simmons Covid19 Hospitalization Update

Following her release from a hospitalization in which she underwent treatment for coronavirus (COVID-19), D’Andra Simmons has opened up about her experience. 

How to Watch

Catch up on The Real Housewives of Dallas on Peacock or the Bravo App.

In an interview with HollywoodLife, The Real Housewives of Dallas cast member explained, “I was actually in a COVID ward. It was three nurses to one COVID patient, and I went from being the most severe to the middle to okay, it’s now time to go home. I was in a place where I was on oxygen.” 

D’Andra noted she first began experiencing symptoms the day after Christmas, while she was recovering from a recent ankle replacement surgery. After waking up with a temperature, D’Andra felt as though something was wrong, especially when she was unable to get her temperature down with over-the-counter medications. She then called her doctor, who suggested a COVID test.

Soon after testing positive, D’Andra went to the hospital when she had a hard time breathing. 

“The problem with me is I wasn’t breathing,” she said. “I was having a hard time breathing and I had the pulse oximeter. Mine was below 85. Below 90 is not good and that’s when I went to the hospital and they decided to admit me, which was the right decision due to the temperature and the breathing. I was on oxygen and came home with oxygen, and luckily, I haven’t had to use it since I’ve been home.” 

D’Andra also explained how some of her RHOD cast members showed her love as she recovered. She gave a shoutout to Tiffany Moon, Kary Brittingham, and Kameron Westcott, adding, “Even though you see Kary and I are obviously having a little bit of a rocky road this year, Kary called Jeremy every day and checked on me."
