Covid-19: Greta auto isolata perchè aveva sintomi

Greta Thunberg: "Ho avuto sintomi, mi sono auto isolata due settimane"

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

Lo dichiara proprio lei tramite il suo Instagram, Greta Thunberg, l'eroina 15enne dell'ambiente di aver sicuramente contratto il covid-19, e senza aver fatto il tampone si auto isola anche dalla sua famiglia perchè ha riscontrato tutti i sintomi: "Le ultime due settimane sono rimasta in casa. Quando sono tornata dal mio viaggio nel Centro Europa mi sono isolata. Dieci giorni fa ho iniziato a sentire alcuni sintomi. In Svezia ti puoi testare per Covid-19 solo se hai bisogno di cure mediche urgenti ma è estremamente probabile che lo abbia avuto, dati i sintomi e le circostanze combinati", aggiunge l'attivista per l'ambiente.
