Runaway June’s singer Jennifer Wayne revealed that she recently tested positive for the coronavirus, but has thankfully recovered.
“I’ve been struggling with whether or not to share, because to be honest it’s kind of rocked me and I wasn’t sure that putting it on a public platform was right for me,” the country singer wrote on Instagram on Wednesday (April 15). “But as I’ve been telling people, I’ve had so many people reach out and say they have/had the virus and what did I do, what were my symptoms etc. So anyway, I am sharing this because I did contract Covid 19 (I’m assuming from the grocery store, it’s the only place I’ve been?!) and I had some great advice from doctors and friends and family (@travelingwithfinn !)… and this helped me kick this things ass.”
Wayne went on to note that to beat the virus, she “loaded up on Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, B complex; chaga mushrooms and ZINC! Lots of Zinc. I also drank more water and Gatorade then I ever have in my life. I wanted to flush that thing out of my system. Those vitamins and staying hydrated and rest were a lifesaver for me.”
“Next up, donating my blood and plasma to help others,” she concluded. “Sorry for the long post, and sending LOTS of love to all of you and hope you are staying healthy and safe!”
The accompanying photo shows the songstress holding up a sign with three things she is grateful for: “My parents did NOT get the virus,” “My body, which I have so harshly judged in the past, fought it off and kept me healthy” and “I have had incredible family and friend support. I am a lucky girl.”
