Greta Thunberg har vore innandørs dei to siste vekene. Grunnen er at ho har vore sjuk – truleg med covid-19, skriv ho på Instagram.
– Då eg kom heim frå reisa mi i Sentral-Europa isolerte eg meg sjølv i ei lånt leilegheit utan mora og søstera mi. For drygt ti dagar sidan byrja eg å kjenne symptom, akkurat som faren min som var med på reisa, skriv Greta på Instagramkontoen sin.
– Eg følte meg sliten, hadde frysningar, sår hals og hoste. Faren min opplevde dei same symptoma, berre mykje meir intense og med feber, held ho fram.

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
Kjenner seg nesten frisk
Greta har ikkje vorte testa, sidan det berre er dei som har behov for umiddelbar hjelp som blir testa i Sverige Ho skriv likevel at «det er ekstremt sannsynleg at eg har hatt det, gitt symptoma og omstenda».
Greta kjenner seg nesten frisk igjen, og oppmodar følgjarane sine om å følgje instruksar frå ekspertar og styresmakter, og halde seg heime for å bremse spreiinga av viruset.
