Gloria Estefan is the latest star to speak out on her experience with COVID-19.
On Tuesday, the pop-icon shared the news via Instagram.
She explains that she dined outdoors at a restaurant in Miami in late October and tested negative days later.
“In the past few weeks, I have been one of the victims of COVID,” Estefan said in the video. “The reason I’m sharing this is that I want you to know how highly contagious this is — I wear my mask everywhere. I went to a restaurant outdoors with some family — three, four of us — and everybody was negative. We wore masks all the way to the table.”
She also believes that she received from a fan who greeted her.
“When we left, the only thing that I can imagine happened is that someone came up to me when I was eating and tapped me on the shoulder,” she said. “They were very close, they had no mask and they were telling me beautiful things. But that’s the only thing that I have done outside of my enclosure here.”
A few days later, Estefan noticed that her sense of taste was shot, followed by her sense of smell, leading her to start feeling a little panic.
She then tested positive for COVID-19 and quarantined in her home for two weeks.
Since then, Estefan added that she is out of the woods, having tested negative twice, last week.
