Along with Erica, her mother has also been tested positive for the virus. The actress recently took to her social media account and shared the news while advising everyone not to rely on the self-test kits.
She wrote, “Requesting Your Kind Attention When covid first hit us I was more than paranoid about it but also knew that most of us are going to contract it sooner or later. Unfortunately, as of now me along with my mom have tested positive One note of advice DO NOT rely on the home test (coviself kit) because they are not reliable at all On the 2nd of January when I developed cough n sore throat, I got myself tested on the coviself kit knowing that I have had a history of laryngitis and the cough n sore throat could be from that and further on for confirmation I went on to take 2 more tests the following day. All 3 tests showed negative, along with me my mom’s test on coviself also showed negative but i dint feel too good because this time the sore throat was so bad that I felt like I had sandpaper in my throat. As I started to develop symptoms I opted for the lab test which came out positive. Mom n I have been facing congestion, cough. cold severe body and headaches and fluctuating fever with occasional shivers. We are isolated and under medical care. I would like to request those who have come in contact with us in the past week to please get yourself tested Much love – EJF”
We wish Erica and her mother a speedy recovery.
