The unifying effect of the novel Coronavirus pandemic has been talked about by many. Suddenly, all of us, all over the world, is one human tissue. Everyone is at risk, as the virus doesn’t discriminate based on one’s status, title, or Instagram followers. A recent proof of that is Victoria Secret’s model, Alexina Graham.

 

The 30-year-old model took to Instagram on Tuesday to reveal she was hospitalized for coronavirus after experiencing severe symptoms. In the post, Graham shared two pictures. The first showed her at the beginning of stages of her symptoms when Graham thought she “thought she had food poisoning only.” The second photo showed Graham lying on a hospital bed with an IV drip in and mask on.

Thank you to the people who sent kind messages, love and good vibes ???? It really meant the world to me and lifted my spirits???? Some People are still not taking this seriously. I see on the news there are still gatherings going on and even house party’s!!Please stay home in isolation alone or with who you live with only!! It’s scary -I was throwing up and on the toilet at the same time multiple times through the first day, the fever appeared and then when It broke I got severe chills, i was light headed, I lost shortness of breath, I lost the ability to be able to speak properly in full sentences,my lungs just wouldn’t let me, my chest was tight, I wasn’t able to get in and out of a bath alone, i needed help to get in and out of bed and even eating became painful!!
