La joven activista ambiental Greta Thunberg dio a conocer por medio de las redes sociales que ha estado aislada en las últimas dos semanas luego de regresar de un viaje por el centro de Europa.

Ella y su padre han tenido síntomas relacionados con el coronavirus, el cual afecta actualmente el continente europeo.

“Me sentía cansada, tenía escalofríos, dolor de garganta y tos. Mi padre experimentó los mismos síntomas, pero más intensos y con fiebre”, escribió la joven sueca en su cuenta de Instagram.

Además, Greta explicó que en Suecia aún no se están haciendo pruebas para detectar el coronavirus, al menos que sea un caso de emergencia.

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

“A todos los que se sienten enfermos se les dice que se queden en casa y se aíslen. Por lo tanto, no me hicieron la prueba del COVID-19, pero es extremadamente probable que lo haya tenido, dado los síntomas y las circunstancias”, añadió.

Greta Thunberg agregó que se siente mejor ahora y ha aprovechado el aislamiento para aconsejar a las personas que aún no están contagiadas de quedarse en casa e impedir la propagación del virus y contaminar a otros individuos.
