Greta Thunberg, the teenage climate change activist, has revealed that she has self-isolated after showing coronavirus symptoms.
Having travelled around central Europe, visiting Brussels and Hamburg to lead school strike events, Greta, 17, decided she should stay at home.
She took to social media to urge young people in particular to take the virus seriously, noting that she did not feel particularly ill.
While Greta has not been tested for coronavirus, because her home country of Sweden does not currently test for it outside hospitals, she said it is “extremely likely” she has had it.
“Everyone feeling ill is 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.”
Britain’s Prince Charles has today been affirmed corona-positive. He met Greta earlier in the climate change business.
