SOURCE – Greta Thunberg said Tuesday it’s “extremely likely” that she became infected with COVID-19 on a recent jaunt to Europe — but has “basically recovered.”
The 17-year-old Swedish climate activist said both she and her father, who accompanied her on the Brussels leg of her journey, have experienced symptoms associated with coronavirus.
“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,” she wrote on Instagram.

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
Just when I thought it could only get bleaker. Trump is going to solve Coronavirus by Easter so I can stuff my face with glazed ham and now that Bond villain Greta Thumbum has the Coronavirus! Everything coming up Kyle!
And before you come after me that it’s wrong to wish such a virus on a little girl. Uhh, Thumbum is 17. I’m pretty sure at 17 you can run for President of Sweden. Listen, you want to play with the big boys in the Climate Change game, then you have to be able to play with the big boys when it comes to blog game also. You don’t see me shying away when people attack Branded. Nope. I’m the drummer boy playing taps on the front lines ready to be picked off first with a bullet to the neck.
What’s Thumbum breaking the rules going outside anyway? Didn’t she know we have a global pandemic on our hands? Who knows how many hands she shook or babies she kissed on her World Tour for climate? Stop acting like the fucking Beatles Thumbum and go back to your villain lair like everyone else. I haven’t left the apartment in days. Instead you’re jet-setting around the globe infecting people.
Thumbum doesn’t even know if she has the Coronavirus either? You can’t pull the wool over my eyes Thumbum. You might have your 10 million followers fooled, but not me. I’m doing my part around here flattening the curve and you’re telling people to stay home after you were just holding rallies with thousands of people and talking to Heads of State. Is Thumbum the most dangerous biological weapon the world has ever seen? Have to at least consider it.
Oh, and I don’t know if you’ve seen this Thumbum, but Climate Change is basically cured. The rivers of Venice are cleaned up. Smog from China is at an all time low. No one’s on the roads anymore and the factories are shut down. Good news, you did it. Now you can crawl back to your lair never to return. Kick rocks, Thumbum. Ya fucking ghoul.
