The Charmed star Alyssa Milano has just revealed that she too was infected with the terrifying illness. Alyssa posted to Instagram a photo of herself with an oxygen breathing mask on and her COVID-19 positive test results.
Poor Alyssa wrote "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 breather. 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."
She also explained that she had taken two tests before and the antibody test and received negative results and has since been tested again to reveal she actually was positive for the deadly virus. "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."
The Who's the Boss? star warned her followers and fans "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 though I was dying. It felt like I was dying."
We are so relieved she made it through. Feel better soon, Alyssa!
