The activist Swedish Greta Thunberg has assured this Tuesday that it is “very likely” to have been infected by coronavirusthough no medical authority has taken the test to be able to confirm it. The young girl believed to have been infected by the symptoms which he has suffered, as has been revealed in a publication in Instagram.
Both she and her father decided to put in quarantine after that, after travelling by train Europe, believed to have been infected. “I don’t want to endanger anyone else. After a few days I started to feel some symptoms. At the same time, my father experienced symptoms a lot more intense”.
“For about ten days I started to feel some symptoms, at exactly the same time that my father, who traveled with me from Brussels”, has written in the aforementioned network social. “I felt tired, had chills, sore throat, and cough. My father experienced the same symptoms, but much more intense and with a fever,” he added, explaining that he has spent the last two weeks confined to his house without going outside and now it is already “almost recovered”, but that it will continue autoaislada liability.

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
“Those who do not belong to a risk group we have a huge responsibilityour actions can make the difference between life and death for many other person”, it indicates Thunberg, who makes a petition to the general population: “Listen to the experts”.
