Nyle DiMarco Most Likely Has Coronavirus, But Didn't Take a Test to Save It for Someone Else

Nyle DiMarco Most Likely Has Coronavirus, But Didn't Take a Test to Save It for Someone Else

Nyle DiMarco believes that he has coronavirus after experiencing all of the symptoms, but he is not going to take a test.

The 30-year-old model and Dancing With the Stars winner shared an important message with fans to explain why he didn’t take a test, despite having access to one.

“I’ve been really sick and I am now on the mend. I do not typically do this but I wanted to share something,” Nyle said in his video on Instagram. “I’ve been really sick and I am now on the mend. It is very possible I contracted coronavirus and I have access to get tested but I do not want to. The reason is because there is a shortage of covid-19 test kits in the U.S. and the sick patients need it more than I do.”

“For 48 hours starting Sunday night, I had a fever, body chills, a sore throat and a mild cough. All these are symptomatic of COVID-19. Some with COVID-19 have reported not being able to taste or smell. That was my experience too,” Nyle continued. “I knew I wasn’t a high risk so I stayed calm. I communicated with my doctor and self-quarantined. I kept an eye out for any respiratory issues because if it worsened, it could be deadly.”

“But I recovered…. And I still am self-isolating. I’d like to stress that testing is important. Widespread testing has been a key part for some countries like South Korea’s efforts in handling Covid-19. In a perfect world, I’d take the test. Unfortunately the U.S. lacks enough test kits. If you are healthy and have no respiratory issues, I encourage you to be mindful of sick patients that need to get tested more than you do,” he said. “And stay at home to avoid spreading and help flattening the curve. We’re in this together. Let look out for each other!!”

Here are all of the celebrities who have tested positive for coronavirus.
