Anna Camp Revealed She Had Coronavirus; Urges Fans To Wear A Mask

Anna Camp hass opening up about her coronavirus diagnosis on Instagram.

The 37-year-old actress, who you know from the Pitch Perfect movies, and NBC’s recently cancelled Perfect Harmony, shared her story with fans on Tuesday (July 21), and urged them to wear a mask when they’re out in public spaces.

“I was extremely sick for over three weeks and still have lingering symptoms. I was incredibly safe. I wore a mask. I used hand sanitizer,” Anna explained, but it didn’t last. “One time, when the world was starting to open up, I decided to forgo wearing my mask. One. Time. And I ended up getting it.”

She continued that “people are saying it’s like having the flu, but I’ve had the flu, and this is absolutely not that.”

Anna added, “The panic of contracting a virus that is basically untreatable and is so new that no one knows the long term irreparable damage it does to your immune system is unbelievably stressful. Completely losing my sense of smell and taste without knowing when or even if they will return is extremely disorienting. I’m only smelling about 30 percent of how I used to now.”

“I’m lucky,” she says. “Because I didn’t die. But people are. Please wear ur mask. It can happen any time. And it can happen to anyone.”

Anna concluded, “Even that one time you feel safe. We can all make a difference. Wearing a mask is saving lives. Thank you to everyone who reached out to check on me during this scary time. Please be safe out there. Let’s all do our part and wear a mask. I don’t want any of you to go through what I did. Even though it’s a little thing, it can have a huge impact, and it’s so incredibly easy to do❤️.”

Anna is just one of many other celebs who have tested positive for the virus.
