Greta Thunberg says she and her father, Swedish actor Svante Thunberg, appear to have been infected by the coronavirus.
In an interview with New Scientist, the climate change campaigner said they had both experienced some symptoms of covid-19 after a recent train tour of Europe together. The pair were travelling before restrictions were imposed in several countries.
However, she stresses that neither of them have been tested for the virus, as Sweden is only testing people with the most severe symptoms and those in at-risk groups.
“I came home from central Europe and then I isolated myself from the beginning, because I thought I might as well as I’ve been on trains and so I don’t want to put anyone else at risk. But I started feeling some symptoms after a few days. At the same time, my father was feeling much more intense symptoms.”
And I can only imagine how ecstatic the right-wing is at hearing this news. Maybe the death threats will subside now.
‘Cause that's what it would be. "Tea and cake or death? Tea and cake or death? Tea and cake or death!" Students with beards, (mimes demonstrating with picket signs) "Tea and cake or death! Tea and cake or death! Little Red Cookbook! Little Red Cookbook!" ‘Cause, "Cake or death?" That's a pretty easy question. Anyone could answer that.
