Chloe Bennet Reveals She is Battling Coronavirus

Chloe Bennet has tested positive for coronavirus.

The 28-year-old Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. actress took to her Instagram Stories on Thursday (December 31) to open up about her battle with the virus.

“Hey haven’t been on here for a little, wanted to give an update… On Christmas morning I woke up with a high fever, and unable to breathe,” Chloe explained. “I got tested, and I’m positive for COVID-19 … it’s been a rough week to say the least. Multiple members of my family are also infected, we’ve all been battling it out together. We’re still not in the clear, but as of now we’re doing…okay.”

She continued: “I’m sharing this because I want to iterate to anyone who still may not be taking covid seriously, please please please f–king do. Covied sucks. It just really sucks. I pride myself on staying healthy, I always wore a mask, social distanced, and took all the necessary precautions and I still got VERY sick. And I’m one of the lucky ones. I repeat! I’m young, healthy, and diligent about my health and this virus still knocked me the f–k down and continues to do so. Even trying to just write this out is proving to be exhausting.”

Chloe ended her message by telling her fans to stay safe in the New Year.

“So I guess I’m on here just trying to remind anyone whose reading this, that yes 2020 is coming to an end, but this pandemic is still raging on, and if you can don’t let up. Stay distant, stay safe, wear a mask,” Chloe concluded. “On that note, I love you guys, stay healthy, and happy (almost) new year. X CB. P.S. f–k you 2020, I can’t wait to not be in you.”
