Actor Daniel Dae Kim Shares Coronavirus Diagnosis Calls for an End to 'Cowardly' Anti-Asian Racism

American actor Daniel Dae Kim announced on Thursday that he has tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

Kim who is known for his roles on Hawaii Five-0 and Lost shared the news in a 10-minute video posted to his Instagram. He had been filming the series New Amsterdam in New York City for the past several weeks before the show halted production because of the threat of the virus. In a darkly ironic twist, he was playing a doctor working to respond to a flu pandemic.

Kim, 51, said he began feeling ill while returning home on a flight to Hawaii, and later began to experience chest tightness, body aches and a fever. He said he self-isolated since returning, leaving only to go to a drive-through coronavirus testing facility in Honolulu.

The actor explained that while he was diagnosed with COVID-19 and has experienced symptoms, he has not needed to go to the hospital and has started to feel better. His family has all tested negative for the virus.
