Bond girl Olga Kurylenko tests positive for coronavirus after coming down with fever and fatigue
‘James Bond’ actress, Olga Kurylenko, has revealed that she has tested positive for the novel coronavirus. The 40-year-old who starred alongside Daniel Craig in 2008’s Bond series ‘Quantum of Solace’ said that she is in quarantine at home as she had been “ill for almost a week” with fever and fatigue.
The actress posted a picture of her closed window on her Instagram account and mentioned: “Fever and fatigue are my main symptoms. Take care of yourself and do take this seriously!”
“To bring down the temperature, they said to take Paracetamol, which I do. That's all. Nothing more to do. Of course, I still take vitamins for myself like that. And I eat garlic, just for the immune system. I drink water. Squeeze lemons in water. That's all,” said ‘The Death Of Stalin’ actress in her post.
Kurylenko, who was born in Soviet-era Ukraine, is now a French citizen and has written her caption on social media in both English and Russian. According to reports, she has lived in London for around a decade, but she did not reveal where she is undergoing quarantine in her Instagram post.
Kurylenko is the latest celebrity from the entertainment industry to have contracted COVID-19. Before her, Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson tested positive for the disease, making them the first celebrity couple to be affected by the deadly virus. The pair was in Australia working on Baz Luhrmann's untitled Elvis Presley film for Warner Bros.
Hanks has himself confirmed the news in a brief statement, saying: “Hello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive.”
“Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety require. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no? We’ll keep the world posted and updated. Take care of yourselves! — Tom Hanks."
Soon, after their results were confirmed, Hanks and his wife were taken to hospital in Australia. The authorities also ordered quarantine to those who may have been exposed to the virus after having shaken hands with the couple.
