“I’ve tested positive for SARS-CoV-2. Although the only time I left home was to go to work and always wore a face mask, my immune system suffered. Chronic stress and fatigue did their part. Look after yourselves. The test was done Thursday afternoon, thanks to MANU for the speedy results,” Zaharieva wrote.
