While “Breaking Bad” alum Bryan Cranston has recovered from COVID-19, the actor recently revealed that he’s yet to recover his full sense of taste or smell.

Cranston, 64, and his wife, Robin Dearden, contracted the virus back in March.

“It was a surprise to us because we heard it was coming over, and then all of a sudden, she got it first. She gave it to me because we share,” he said during his Thursday appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”  

“We had a few days of achiness, but not enough to keep you in bed,” Cranston explained. “I had a temperature of 99 for about three hours, and then just exhaustion for a week after that.”

The “Malcolm in the Middle” actor was sick for about 10 days, and while he’s made a full recovery, there are lingering symptoms.

“The only thing that lingered, and still is to this day, is I lost a percentage of my ability to taste and smell,” he said. “I think about 75 percent has come back, but if someone was brewing coffee, and I walk into a kitchen, I cannot … smell it.”

The Emmy-winner previously spoke of his diagnosis, telling fans he felt fortunate to only exhibit mild symptoms.

“I count my blessings and urge you to keep wearing the damn mask,” Cranston pled. “Keep washing your hands, and stay socially distant. We can prevail — but only if we follow the rules together.”
