Popular actress and TV personality, Debi Mazar have tested positive for the Coronavirus—she recently took to social media to share a timeline of her symptoms.
Deborah Anne Mazar Corcos popularly known as Debi Mazar is an American actress and television personality, known for playing sharp-tongued women.
A day ago, Debi revealed that the virus had infected her. She did this via her Instagram page, where she posted a photo of herself with a lengthy caption that gave a detailed timeline of her symptoms.

In her captions, she assured her fans that she was ok and that she, as well as her entire family, are under self-isolation. She revealed that her hubby and twin daughters got the symptoms first. Her caption read,
"My entire home … got an odd bug — low-grade fever, headaches, sore throat, body aches, ears ringing, and a dry cough. It cleared up quickly."
Two weeks later, the Younger co-star woke up with a high-temperature fever and intense body aches, at which point she contacted a friend of hers who works as a doctor to ask if she could get tested.
However, she was denied access to the test as she did not meet the parameters required—she hadn't been out of the country recently neither had she interacted with anyone who had tested positive to the test.
She said she found the criteria "crazy" as she had recently used the subway, and been to several public places, including the theater, grocery store, and pharmacy.
The 55-year-old TV personality's family had reportedly been keeping an eye on the news of the pandemic's spread as she has family ties in Italy.
She says she will remain at home to continue healing.
She shared that her greatest panic came recently when Mayor Bill de Blasio refused to enforce the closure of schools and restriction of movement around the city.
Debi was eventually tested on Tuesday after a friend informed her that CityMD/Urgent Care had kits available. While there, she was tested first for the flu, and after the result came back negative, she was tested for the Coronavirus, and she was advised to self-isolate while waiting for the results.
The results came later on Saturday, and it was positive. "I'm hoping I've been through the worst of it already, one day, I feel crappy, and the next, I'm normal. Today my lungs are heavy, but I'm tough," Debi wrote.
She says she will remain at home to continue healing and that her family will also stay under isolation for 14 days. She advised her fans to do so as well and wished them good luck in their endeavors. The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease brought about by a newly discovered coronavirus.
