Mel Gibson’s rep says the star was hospitalized for COVID-19, but has recovered

(LOS ANGELES) — A representative for Mel Gibson confirms to ABC Audio that the Oscar winner spent a week in the hospital battling COVID-19. 

The actor and Hacksaw Ridge director was diagnosed with the disease in April, and was subsequently treated successfully in a U.S. hospital with the drug Remdesivir.

Gibson’s spokesperson says he’s now negative for the coronavirus, and like those who have recovered from the respiratory virus, has COVID-19 antibodies.
