Alyssa Milano hospitalized due to 'long hauler' symptoms of COVID-19

Actress Alyssa Milano said Saturday that she was hospitalized for complications due to  COVID-19 in April and that she still had symptoms of the disease months later.

“I was acutely sick with Covid-19 in April. I still have many symptoms,” the actor and activist said in a tweet to her 3.7 million followers on Saturday. “I am what they call a ‘long hauler.’”

“Last night, I had real heaviness in my chest. I went to the ER just to make sure it wasn’t a blood clot. Thankfully, it wasn’t," she added. “This virus sucks. Please take it seriously.”

Milano, 47, also said she'd lost some of her hair from having the coronavirus.

“Thought I’d show you what #Covid19 does to your hair,” she wrote. “Please take this seriously.”

The revelation comes as Milano wrote last week that "everything hurt" from the novel coronavirus after being sick for two weeks.

"This was me on April 2nd after being sick for 2 weeks. I had never been this kind of sick," Milano wrote. "Everything hurt. Loss of smell. It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t keep food in me. I lost 9 pounds in 2 weeks. I was confused. Low grade fever. And the headaches were horrible. I basically had every Covid symptom."
