Igralka Alyssa Milano je na Instagramu priznala, da je že aprila zbolela za covidom-19. Prebolevanje je trajalo dva tedna. "Nikoli doslej nisem bila tako bolna. Vse me je bolelo. Počutila sem se, kot bi se mi na prsi usedel slon".
V dveh tednih je shujšala za devet kilogramov, imela je hude glavobole in povišano telesno temperaturo. Opravila je dva testa na covid-19 - oba sta bila negativna. Po tem, ko se je že počutila nekoliko bolje, je opravila tudi test na protitelesa, a tudi ta ni pokazal, da bi prebolela covid-19.
"Po tem, ko sem zadnje štiri mesece trpela za vrtoglavico, želodčnimi težavami, bolečinami v srcu, zasoplostjo, slabim kratkoročnim spominom in slabim počutjem, sem opravila še en test na protitelesa. Ta je bil pozitiven," je zapisala svojo zgodbo.
Zato želi opozoriti ljudi, naj bodo previdni, si umivajo roke, nosijo maske in držijo medsebojno razdaljo. "Nočem, da se kdo počuti tako, kot sem se počutila jaz," je še dodala.
This was me on April 2nd after being sick for 2 weeks. I had never been this kind of sick. Everything hurt. Loss of smell. It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t keep food in me. I lost 9 pounds in 2 weeks. I was confused. Low grade fever. And the headaches were horrible. I basically had every Covid symptom. At the very end of march I took two covid19 tests and both were negative. I also took a covid antibody test (the finger prick test) after I was feeling a bit better. NEGATIVE. After living the last 4 months with lingering symptoms like, vertigo, stomach abnormalities, irregular periods, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, zero short term memory, and general malaise, I went and got an antibody test from a blood draw (not the finger prick) from a lab. I am POSITIVE for covid antibodies. I had Covid19. I just want you to be aware that our testing system is flawed and we don’t know the real numbers. I also want you to know, this illness is not a hoax. I thought I was dying. It felt like I was dying. I will be donating my plasma with hopes that I might save a life. Please take care of yourselves. Please wash your hands and wear a mask and social distance. I don’t want anyone to feel the way I felt. Be well. I love you all (well, maybe not the trolls. Just the kind people.)❤️
