CLIMATE change activist Greta Thunberg has confirmed that she may have COVID-19.
She’s currently self-isolating with her father, actor Svante Thunberg, as she has symptoms.
It started as the pair travelled through Europe, before the lockdown, whereby both began to start having symptoms. These came to be after a trip to the Belgium capital of Brussells included (as revealed in an Instagram post made by the Swedish teenager, linked below) shivers, a sore throat, a cough and feeling tired.
She revealed (in a video by the New Scientist magazine) that her father had ‘more intense symptoms’. She also confessed that ‘for the last two weeks I have been isolated and then I got the virus’. She continued, ‘I came home from central Europe and then I isolated myself from the beginning, because I thought I might as well as I’ve been on trains…and so I don’t want to put anyone else at risk’.
Currently, there are 18,605 deaths worldwide from the coronavirus, with 417,620 cases overall and 108,302 recoveries.
