Alyssa Milano had a severe case of COVID-19

In her recent Instagram post, Alyssa Milano revealed that she tested positive for COVID-19 back on April 2nd. She describes the illness, saying that she had never been this sick in her life.

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.

Moreover, Milano lost almost 9 pounds in just a space of two weeks. And basically had every single symptom related to COVID-19:

I lost 9 pounds in 2 weeks. I was confused. Low grade fever. And the headaches were horrible. I basically had every COVID symptom.

Even after testing negative twice, Milano did not have COVID-19 antibodies. She had lingering symptoms for months, after which she finally tested positive for anti-bodies as well:

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.

Alyssa Milano further warned people that COVID-19 is not a hoax and that America’s testing system is really flawed:

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.

In simple words, Milano said that it was as if she was dying:

I thought I was dying. It felt like I was dying.

After that, Alyssa Milano said that she will be donating her blood plasma while emphasizing on the importance of social distancing.

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.)❤️
