Sunrise host Natalie Barr returns to the show despite being struck down by yet another illness after COVID-19

Sunrise host Natalie Barr has been struck down by yet another illness just days after she recovered from COVID-19.

The 54-year-old trooper returned to the breakfast show as expected on Wednesday after she completed seven days in quarantine, however she has revealed to her co-host David Koch that she’s still sick.

Nat is back! How are you feeling?’ Koch said at the top of the program.

“Good, except I’ve got a sinus infection and am a bit lightheaded. Apart from that, I’m great,’ Barr said in a sarcastic manner.

“Que? You have a sinus infection as well?’ Koch responded?

“I did a telehealth (appointment) with the doctor yesterday and he said, ‘Don’t worry, you’re not contagious,;” Barr assured Koch.

Barr, who grew up in Bunbury, was scheduled to return to Sunrise on Monday after a quick trip to Perth.

But she was required to quarantine after she contracted coronavirus when she returned to Sydney.

On Monday’s show, Koch explained what had happened to Barr.

“Well, everyone’s been asking, ‘Where’s Nat?’ Well, you may have noticed she’s been missing over the past week or so,” Koch said.

“She’s at home in isolation after testing positive for COVID.”
