Zoey Deutch Reveals She Battled Coronavirus
Zoey Deutch has revealed that she contracted coronavirus before the lockdown began and said she is doing “okay” now.
“People keep asking me, ‘Where did you get it?’ and I wish I knew. I’m okay now. I’m so grateful for my health and I also feel guilty, in a way, for making it out okay. I think this virus is bringing up so many conflicting emotions.
“I have to say I’m also so grateful for my inherent neuroses, which caused me to stay inside before I was supposed to. I’ve been quarantined longer than there was a mandated shut-in,” Zoey Deutch, who continued to test positive for a month, wrote in an essay for Vulture.
“The Politician” star Zoey Deutch admitted that she felt guilty for recovering from COVID-19 infection, which continues to wreak havoc around the world.
The 25-year-old actor said she decided to speak out about her experience with the disease as she wanted to encourage people to wear masks.
“I am so lucky to be healthy, that I’m safe and not immuno-compromised and have access to doctors; I am incredibly privileged.
“But not everyone shares that privilege – so we need to be extra careful for those who don’t by wearing masks,” she said.
