Chris Rock seen for the first time after recovering from Covid-19

Chris Rock looks healthy as he enjoys a walk in New York with daughter Zahra… as he’s seen for the first time since recovering from Covid-19

He announced last month that he had experienced a breakthrough Covid-19 infection.

But Chris Rock, 56, appeared to be healthy and in high spirits on Friday as he stepped out for the first time since recovering from the illness.

He was seen grinning ear-to-ear while catching up with his 17-year-old daughter Zahra as they went for a walk in New York City.

Back in action: Chris Rock, 56, looked healthy and happy while walking in New York with his daughter Zahra, 17, after revealing last month that he had contracted Covid-19

Chris looked casual and comfortable in a simple gray sweater, which he paired with cuffed charcoal cargo pants and weathered white trainers.

He added a splash of color with a baby blue wristwatch and blue-tinted round-frame sunglasses, and he kept a set of Bose noise-canceling headphones around his neck to listen to later. 

Zahra also stayed warm in an argyle sweater and jeans, plus white Nike sneakers.

She sported long braids and wore a black mask below her chin while chatting with her father.

No fuss: Chris wore a gray sweater with charcoal cargo pants, white trainers and blue sunglasses. Zahra rocked an argyle sweater with jeans and white Nikes

Having a laugh: He grinned ear-to-ear at something his daughter said

On September 19, Chris shared the news that he had ‘just found out’ that he contracted Covid-19.

‘Trust me you don’t want,’ he warned his 5.2 million followers, before urging them to ‘get vaccinated.’ 

Luckily, he was able to recovery quickly from the virus, and he shared in May on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that he was vaccinated.

He joked at the time that he wasn’t ashamed to use his fame to help him get a shot as soon as possible, before revealing he received the single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

‘I used my celebrity, Jimmy,’ he joked. ‘I didn’t care. I was like, “Hey, step aside, Betty White.”‘

Breakthrough: On September 19, Chris shared the news that he had ‘just found out’ that he contracted Covid-19, despite being fully vaccinated

No time wasted: He joked on The Tonight Show in May that he was happy to get vaccinated and used his celebrity to get to the front of the line; seen in January 2020 in Pasadena 

Although it’s still possible to contract the novel coronavirus after being fully vaccinated, breakthrough infections tend to be considerably milder than infections in unvaccinated people.

A Kaiser Family Foundation analysis published in late July found that less than one in 100 people who are vaccinated will experience a breakthrough infection, and even if they do they’ll be significantly protected against hospitalization or death.

The analysis determined that more than nine in ten people who have been hospitalized for Covid-19 were unvaccinated, while the rate of vaccinated people who died from breakthrough infections was close to zero.

New ventures: Rock has been venturing out from comedy recently with lead roles on the FX anthology series Fargo for its fourth season and in the Saw franchise film Spiral (pictured)

Although Rock is best known for his stand-up specials and comedy films, he’s lately been branching out in to more dramatic territory.

He led the acclaimed fourth season of the FX anthology series Fargo, in which he starred as a gang leader in Kansa City, Missouri, amid a conflict with a rival crime organization in 1950.

The comedian branched out into horror earlier this year for Spiral: From The Book Of Saw, a continuation of the long-running gory series.

Last year, he told Collider that the film came about after a chance meeting with a Lionsgate executive in which he mused about lightening up an otherwise dark horror film with some of his trademark comedy.
