James Charles Thinks He May Have Beat Coronavirus Earlier This Year
"All of the symptoms I was dealing with match those of COVID-19"
James Charles thinks he may have already contracted and overcome coronavirus after he fell ill towards the beginning of 2020.
The YouTuber publicly responded to a tweet that suggested COVID-19 may have been circulating in the United States for several months. The tweet suggests that the virus could have been undetected for a long time before citizens were officially tested for it.
“This isn’t a conspiracy tweet but I really think COVID-19 has been here in America for awhile. Do you guys remember how sick everyone was during the holidays/early January? And how everyone was saying they had the “flu” and the flu shot “didn’t work”?” it read.
James responded: “Remember at New Years when I was literally sick for a month and a half straight? I’ve never been that sick for that long. All of the symptoms I was dealing with match those of COVID-19. I’m convinced that I already had Corona and beat it...”
It's possible that the 20-year-old did have the virus, but it’s also possible that he contracted a form of seasonal flu.
“The symptoms for COVID-19 match up perfectly with almost every other flu or cold virus. you most likely did not have covid-19 since it was mainly localized in china until just recently. flus do get that bad tho, im glad ur feeling better from that!” one fan wrote.
