    Kim Kardashian previously called for compassion for husband Kanye West over his battle with bipolar disorder, now she’s opening up about his “scary” experience with COVID-19.

    During an interview with GRAZIA the reality TV star revealed that West was diagnosed with the coronavirus mid-March and caring for him proved to be quite challenging.

    “Kanye had it way at the beginning, when nobody really knew what was going on,” Kardashian told the publication. “It was so scary and unknown. I had my four babies and no one else in the house to help.” 

    The KKW Beauty founder added “changing his sheets with gloves and a face shield was really a scary time.”

    “I had to go and change his sheets and help him get out of bed when he wasn’t feeling good. It was a challenge because it was so unknown,” Kardashian explained.

    Ye told Forbes in July that his symptoms included “chills” and “shaking in bed.” 

    He also watched videos “telling me what I’m supposed to do to get over it,” he said.

    “I remember someone had told me Drake had the coronavirus and my response was Drake can’t be sicker than me,” West added.

    Meanwhile, Kardashian believes the pandemic may very well be just what Mother Earth needs right now. 

    “I’m the type of person that respects the process, that respects what’s going on in the world,” she said. “Maybe our planet needed a break.”

    She also tells Grazia that fans will get to see how her family was impacted by the onset of the coronavirus crisis when the final season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians airs next year.

    “If anything, it’ll be really interesting to see what all of us were doing during the pandemic. We were so scared and cautious and we shared every moment of that,” Kardashian said. “Having to be with four kids and not have their friends or their routines and no help. It was a very different side of us that I don’t think anyone’s really seen.”
