- “I’ve never been sick like that, Dr. Oz,” she said. “It was a very debilitating type of illness. And it just seemed to move throughout my body and my mind.”
Milano said she doesn’t think people take the coronavirus serious enough.
- “I thought of it as a respiratory illness before, and I think because it also goes into your vascular system, it affects every aspect of your body, not just your lungs,” she said.
- “I would never think that an illness or a virus would continue on. I’m now five months out, and I’m still having debilitating symptoms on some days,” she continued.
Milano said back in October that she still felt COVID-19 effects after she first tested positive in August. She went through two negative tests before testing positive. She said she went through almost every COVID-19 symptom, too, back in March.
- “I had never been this kind of sick,” she said in an Instagram post. “Everything hurt. Loss of smell. It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t keep food in me. I lost 9 pounds in 2 weeks. I was confused. Low grade fever. And the headaches were horrible.”
