Kalie Shorr is urging the public to take the coronavirus outbreak seriously after being diagnosed with COVID-19 herself.
“Despite being quarantined (except for a handful of trips for groceries) for three weeks, I managed to contract COVID 19,” the 25-year-old singer/songwriter shared via Twitter. “I’m feeling significantly better, but it’s proof how dangerous and contagious this is. It’s endlessly frustrating to see people not taking this seriously.”
The first few days were absolutely miserable. I've never felt like that before. My entire body was in pain, and my fever was like riding a wave. I completely lost my sense of taste and smell.

She went on to describe the symptoms she experienced, admitting the illness was unlike anything she’s ever experienced.
“The first few days were absolutely miserable,” she said. “I’ve never felt like that before. My entire body was in pain, and my fever was like riding a wave. I completely lost my sense of taste and smell.”
Despite the circumstances, Shorr has been active on social media, often updating fans on her quarantine activities. Most recently, she shared that she watched Tiger King and that she dyed her hair purple.
