She added that it is important to pay attention to symptoms such as flu or a cough.  

"The symptoms keep changing, present yourself for testing soonest. It is flu season so, a simple flu or cough may just be covid. I had the usual smoke allergic reaction, minor cough that led to post nasal dripping which I treat every winter because of the fireplace to keep warm. What I knew as bronchitis turned to be Covid Pneumonia. This thing is challenging health care and it’s practice as we’ve known it," she wrote on Instagram. 

She urged the country to be kind to everyone. 

"The rest of society please be kind, people are going through the most right now. Thanks again for all the prayers and messages of encouragement. Keep safe and let’s live to tell the tale," she wrote. 

"Last lesson for the day. After Futhing(steaming) with eucalyptus do Lung Exercises using the Tri-Ball or just holding your breath and releasing. Rub eucalyptus on your hands breath in and hold counting to 1-10 and release. Then use the balls to inhale, the resistance created makes your muscles work harder, and the harder they work the stronger and more durable they become. As your breathing power improves, Lung Exerciser can even help reduce the feeling of breathlessness from some lung diseases," she concluded.
