Greta Thunberg aseguró que es “muy probable” que tenga coronavirus

- 24 de marzo del 2020 11:45 am

La joven activista confesó en una publicación que ha padecido todos los síntomas de la enfermedad, pero que en Suecia no realizan las pruebas salvo que sea un caso grave en el que peligre la vida del paciente.

Thunberg contó que durante las últimas dos semanas ha estado aislada del mundo luego de haber regresado de una gira por Europa Central. Este aislamiento lo ha hecho en un apartamento alquilado, lejos de su madre y hermana.

“Hace 10 días empecé con los síntomas, exactamente al mismo tiempo que mi papá con quien había viajado a Bruselas. Empecé a sentir agotamiento, escalofríos, dolor de garganta y tos. Mi padre tuvo los mismos síntomas -mucho más intensos- y con fiebre”, escribió la activista de 17 años.

¿Tiene coronavirus? Esa es una pregunta que la propia Thunberg no puede responder ya que los servicios médicos en Suecia no realizan las pruebas a las personas, salvo que sean casos graves. Sin embargo, ella especula con que así es.

Thunberg aclara que ya los síntomas se han ido, pero que curiosamente, siente como si “la última gripa que tuve fue mucho peor que esto”.

La activista advierte a los jóvenes a mantenerse alerta y hacer caso a los cuidados que ha dado la OMS (Organización Mundial de la Salud) y los gobiernos locales para evitar la propagación del virus.

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
