DL Hughley reveals he gave son and radio show co-workers COVID-19 days before fainting onstage and brands himself 'a regular Typhoid Mary'

DL Hughley revealed that he infected multiple people with COVID-19 while recording an episode of his radio show.
The 57-year-old comedian was diagnosed after fainting onstage in Nashville last month - but had taped his radio show just three days before the incident.
In a new interview with TMZ he called himself 'a regular Typhoid Mary' who spread the disease to others including his son Kyle, 32.

As far as his own health is concerned he shared that 'I feel good. Matter of fact, I’m in my last days of quarantine. The COVID wasn’t what – you know, obviously I’d been dehydrated, obviously I’d been exhausted. So the COVID kinda just put everything in hyperdrive. But it was – I’m definitely going to have to work a little different.'
DL stated: 'I didn’t have any symptoms as a matter of fact. But what happened was, I had been in Dallas. A week before, I had done a bunch of shows in Dallas, which is interesting.'
He explained that 'in California everything is on lockdown, so I knew that if I wanted to perform I had to go to a state where the government of that state didn’t give a damn about their people.'
DL's theory is that he picked up the disease in Dallas 'because I got back that Monday. That Tuesday I’d gone to, you know, do the radio show. And then I did the TV show on Wednesday and then I flew out to the thing in Nashville.'

His engagement at Zanies comedy club in Nashville began that Thursday, and that Friday night he passed out in the middle of his set. 
'But everybody who I came in contact with that Tuesday at the radio show tested positive. Everybody. My son, my co-host, my other co- all of them,' he said.
However he did manage to avoid passing the disease onto 'my daughter who had a mask the whole time. So that was most likely when it happened.'
DL, who co-hosts his syndicated radio show with Jasmine Sanders, then compared himself to the historical figure known as Typhoid Mary.

Mary Mallon was an Irishwoman who immigrated to United States in the late 19th century and became the first known asymptomatic typhoid carrier in the country.
She wound up spreading the illness to more than 50 people and was ultimately repeatedly quarantined against her will by the authorities.

He shared: 'I have like no fever, no cough, no trouble breathing. Like I’ve been running four miles, five miles a day everyday since it happ- since about a week now. So I’m feeling great. But it does, it did make me feel horrible to know that not knowing, I potentially jeopardized so many people.'
