Updated On 09 Apr, 2019 Published On

Whoopi Goldberg has again been hospitalized! It's been less than a month since the television host, 63, returned to The View after pneumonia and sepsis scare, and she has host revealed that she was again rushed the hospital due to a 24-hour bug.

The television presenter revealed about her hospitalization during an episode of the ABC morning show on Monday, April 8.

Goldberg said, "I am here. I'm much better. I'm much, much better." She added,

I had a 24-hour bug, which landed me back in the hospital last week, which is why I missed y'all on Thursday.

The bug reportedly was nowhere near as serious as her previous health scare. She said that it "came and went and is now gone". She then added, "I seem to be doing well. I'm here."

Her latest hospitalization comes shortly after she missed over a month of the morning show. Goldberg was initially absent from the ABC show in early February.

She gave the first update on her health by sharing a video clip about the week before her return. She said in the clip at the time that she "came very, very close to leaving the earth."

Goldberg opened up about the scary experience after making a surprise reappearance on The View one week later. 

She said at the time,

You think you can push through because you got a little cold, you say, 'I'm just gonna keep going, keep going.' And you think because you've healed quickly before that something crazy can't happen. Well, it can. I had double pneumonia and sepsis... and so they had to pump a lot of stuff out of me. This is a cautionary tale for all of us. You must really take care of yourself because there is little, tiny stuff out there that will kill you that you never think of.

She continued,

... The scariest moment was hearing my doctor say to me, 'You do realize how close to death you were?'" Goldberg added. "That was like, 'Uhhh actually, no, I hadn't thought of it.' He said, 'Well, you need to think of it. You need to be really clear about what this is.'
