Debi Mazar

The actress said on Instagram that she, her husband, and two teen daughters had “an odd bug” -- low fevers, headaches, dry coughs, and body aches -- that cleared up quickly. A few weeks later, Mazar, 55, got a positive coronavirus test after she had severe body aches and a fever. She called the disease “morphy,” because she feels good one day and not so good the next.
