Climate activist icon, Greta Thunberg has come out saying she is showing symptoms of the virus and has begun self isolating with her dad.

Greta and her father were travelling around Central Europe before self-isolation and lockdown rules were put in place to stop the spread of the virus.

She’s recently posted on instagram listing her symptoms, fatigue, shivers and a sore throat, exactly the same symptoms as her father.

Where she recovered, he got worse with more intense symptoms and developing a fever.

She is currently isolating herself away from her mother and sibling.

Greta’s been travelling on trains and public transport which is where she could have made contact with the virus, but further she could also have unknowingly passed it on.


Her post goes on to say

“I almost didn’t feel ill. My last cold was much worse than this! Had it not been for someone else having the virus simultaneously I might not even have suspected anything….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.”

She’s entirely right.
