Ontem, dia 24, Greta Thunberg publicou no Instagram que pode estar contagiada com coronavírus. A ativista disse que começou a ter sintomas há pelo menos 10 dias:
“Eu estava me sentindo cansada, tendo calafrios, dor de garganta e tossindo. Meu pai teve os mesmos sintomas, mas muito mais intensos e com febre”.
Ainda segundo a ativista, a suspeita de contaminação deu-se depois de um tour pela Europa com seu pai:
“Eu quase não me senti mal. Minha última gripe foi muito pior do que isso! Se não fosse por outra pessoa com o vírus simultaneamente, eu poderia nem suspeitar de nada. Então, eu teria pensado que estava me sentindo mais cansada que o normal e com um pouco de tosse.”
Thunberg disse que optou pelo isolamento. Na Suécia o teste para o coronavírus só é feito em pessoas com estados mais graves.

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
