AceShowbiz - Actress Laura Bell Bundy has joined the growing list of stars who have contracted COVID-19.
The 38-year-old Broadway favourite and TV star opened up about her battles with the coronavirus during an Instagram video chat with fans on Wednesday (March 25), and urged her followers to "please stay home and take care of yourselves."
"Hey guys, I have tested positive for COVID-19... Do not be alarmed. I am OK," Laura said. "I am taking everything in stride. I am taking all the nutritional supplements that have been recommended by my doctor and I have been taking herbs for a while as well. What I wanted to do is explain to you some of the symptoms that I have... I believe they're minor because I have been taking care of myself."
The actress explained she has been in quarantine since 12 March after suffering a headache and sore throat and immediately turned to an acupuncturist and Chinese medicine doctor for help and advice.
"A few days after that I had what I can only explain as a tightness of my chest and a shortness of breath," she added.
She took a test on 19 March and discovered she had contracted the potentially deadly bug on Monday after a weekend of no symptoms whatsoever.
"I actually thought that I was delusional for thinking that I had this," she continued, putting her issues down to allergies or acid reflux.
Laura also revealed her husband has started showing symptoms but their son hasn't.
She then chatted with followers and fans online and detailed what herbs and medications she is taking to combat the virus.
Idris Elba, Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, and former "Game of Thrones" castmates Kristofer Hivju and Indira Varma are among the other actors currently in quarantine after testing positive for the coronavirus.
