Greta Thunberg will return to a television near you Thurs. May 14 for a ‘global’ coronavirus town hall special on CNN.

On Mar. 24, the 17-year-old said she had recovered from coronavirus after diagnosing herself with the deadly disease … claiming “it’s extremely likely I’ve had it” on an Instagram post.

Thunberg has become an outspoken figure, drawing considerable media attention since leading school strikes in her home country of Sweden in 2018.

“Now I’ve basically recovered,” says the climate change activist.

We broke the story … the 17-year-old borrowed an apartment from her mother to self-isolate after diagnosing herself with the virus.

“The last two weeks I’ve stayed inside. When I returned from my trip around Central Europe, I isolated myself (in a borrowed apartment away from my mother and sister) since the number of cases of COVID-19 (in Germany for instance) were similar to Italy in the beginning,” Thunberg previously said.

“Around ten days ago I started feeling some symptoms, exactly the same time as my father – who traveled with me from Brussels. I was feeling tired, had shivers, a sore throat and coughed. My dad experienced the same symptoms, but much more intense and with a fever.”

The activist added: “In Sweden you can not test yourself for COVID-19 unless you’re in need of emergent medical treatment. Everyone feeling ill are told to stay at home and isolate themselves.”

“I have therefore not been tested for COVID-19, but it’s extremely likely that I’ve had it, given the combined symptoms and circumstances.”
