Karl Stefanovic revealed that he and his family are all recovering after receiving a positive Covid diagnosis over the Christmas break.

The Today host said the virus became “pretty intense in parts” for him and his loved ones, as he recalled living with the infection to the morning show viewers.

In the first show back of 2022, his co-host Ally Langdon noticed how croaky his voice still was.

“I am a little croaky. The last couple of weeks, going back to January 3 or 4, the whole family tested positive – the whole family went down with COVID-19,” Karl said.

“It was a bit awful to tell you the truth at times, but we’re all clear now.”

“We got through the whole thing, and look, they say it’s mild, but it’s pretty intense in parts.”

Karl said he is now in the clear thanks to a negative result on a rapid antigen test, and will share more about his experience with Covid at a later time.

It is believed that Karl and his wife Jasmine Yarbrough tested positive for the virus while away in their Noosa beach house for a holiday.
