Praise Dumbledore! J.K. Rowling wants to help others experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. The 54-year-old British Harry Potter scribe revealed on Monday on Twitter that she has been experiencing symptoms of the virus for the past two weeks.
The word-smith had been suffering from the symptoms of Covid-19, but was not tested for the virus at this time. Her most recent Twitter post had some words of encouragement to her fan-base, and also shared a video of a doctor from Queens Hospital that demonstrated a breathing technique that added in her recovery.
The famed author went on to thank her fans for their support, adding, “Thank you for your kind and lovely messages! I really am completely recovered and wanted to share a technique that’s recommended by doctors, costs nothing, has no nasty side effects but could help you/your loved ones a lot, as it did me. Stay safe, everyone x” .
Rowling recently returned to social media after a brief hiatus to help others get through their quarantines. In her time at home, she launched her new site, Harry Potter at Home, for parents and readers struggling in quarantine.
