On Tuesday, climate activist Greta Thunberg announced that she and her father had symptoms of Coronavirus and that it was “extremely likely” for them to have it. In her announcement, she advised her followers to stay at home, whether they are sick or not. She encourages them to protect themselves but those around them who are more vulnerable too.
In her Instagram post, she says: “Many (especially young people) might not notice any symptoms at all or very mild symptoms. Then don’t know they have the virus and can pass it on to people in risk groups.”.
In addition, she wrote: “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.”.
Earlier this month, Greta spoke to European Union lawmakers at a meeting in Brussels. For the safety of her mother and sister back in Stockholm, she and her father, the one who follows her whenever she travels, decided to move into a separate apartment and isolate themselves.
She also stated that she had felt “tired, had shivers, a sore throat and coughed.” and as for her father, his situation was far worse than hers. However, it is not official that they have the Coronavirus because in Sweden can be tested only those who need urgent medical intervention.
In the same Instagram post, Greta Thunberg strongly encouraged young people to “follow the advice from experts and your local authorities and #StayAtHome to slow the spread of the virus.”.
More information about Greta’s case and many other news about what’s happening in the world, coming soon.
Stay well-informed, stay safe!
