Alyssa Milano says US coronavirus ‘testing is flawed’

WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:

  • Alyssa Milano exhibited symptoms of Covid-19 for months yet test results came out negative twice.
  • After feeling better, test results show she has antibodies for the coronavirus, meaning she had COVID-19.
  • The actress says current “coronavirus testing is flawed and we don’t know the real numbers.”

After exhibiting all the symptoms of the coronavirus and feeling like she was dying, actress Alyssa Milano tested negative twice. But after being sick, she now tests positive for coronavirus antibodies. Having the antibodies means she has been exposed to the virus.

Milano is informing the public of what she went through to let people know “that our testing system is flawed and we don’t know the real numbers.”

“I also want you to know, this illness is not a hoax. I thought I was dying. It felt like I was dying.”

The actress cannot be deterred from donating her plasma as she hopes it might save a life in the future.

Milano described her ordeal in her post: “This was me on April 2nd after being sick for 2 weeks. I had never been this kind of sick.”

She said: “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. I basically had every Covid symptom.”

Even after testing negative twice and she was “feeling a bit better,” she still had “lingering symptoms like, vertigo, stomach abnormalities, irregular periods, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, zero short term memory, and general malaise.”

She told fans: “Please take care of yourselves. Please wash your hands and wear a mask and social distance. I don’t want anyone to feel the way I felt. Be well. I love you all (well, maybe not the trolls. Just the kind people.) ❤️.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has advised that the antibody tests currently available may not be accurate and should not be used to determine if someone is immune to COVID-19.
