Greta Thunberg ‘Extremely Likely’ To Have COVID-19

Greta Thunberg stated that it was “extremely likely’ that she had a coronavirus disease.

Greta Thunberg said that it’s “extremely likely” that she had a coronavirus disease or COVID-19, yet she hasn’t been tested for the said disease.

This, as Sweden, as of this writing, already has over 2,300 total confirmed COVID-19 cases, 40 fatalities, and 16 patients were already recovered from the coronavirus disease.

Greta Thunberg posted on her Instagram account, sharing her life update in a lengthy statement.

In her Instagram post, she said that she felt several symptoms after her trip to Central Europe, adding that she had been “basically recovered” and “almost didn’t feel ill”. She also said that only those who have mild symptoms wouldn’t know they already contracted the coronavirus disease and can transfer it to people in risk groups.

Here’s a full statement of Greta Thunberg regarding her current situation:

The last two weeks I’ve stayed inside. When I returned from my trip around Central Europe I isolated myself (in a borrowed apartment away from my mother and sister) since the number of cases of COVID-19 (in Germany for instance) were similar to Italy in the beginning. Around ten days ago I started feeling some symptoms, exactly the same time as my father – who traveled with me from Brussels. I was feeling tired, had shivers, a sore throat and coughed. My dad experienced the same symptoms, but much more intense and with a fever. In Sweden you can not test yourself for COVID-19 unless you’re in need of emergent medical treatment. Everyone feeling ill are told to stay at home and isolate themselves. I have therefore not been tested for COVID-19, but it’s extremely likely that I’ve had it, given the combined symptoms and circumstances. Now I’ve basically recovered, but – AND THIS IS THE BOTTOM LINE: I almost didn’t feel ill. My last cold was much worse than this! Had it not been for someone else having the virus simultainously I might not even have suspected anything. Then I would just have thought I was feeling unusually tired with a bit of a cough. And this it what makes it so much more dangerous. Many (especially young people) might not notice any symptoms at all, or very mild symptoms. Then they don’t know they have the virus and can pass it on to people in risk groups. We who don’t belong to a risk group have an enormous responsibility, our actions can be the difference between life and death for many others. Please keep that in mind, follow the advice from experts and your local authorities and #StayAtHome to slow the spread of the virus. And remember to always take care of each other and help those in need. #COVID #flattenthecurve
