MILANO LISTS SYMPTOMS AMID NEGATIVE COVID RESULTS

The actress lost nine pounds over two weeks. Yet two tests in March both showed negative results for the novel coronavirus. When Milano started to feel better, she took an antibody test. 

According to People, positive antibody test results indicated that a person was exposed to COVID-19. However, Milano's result was negative. She continued to endure the symptoms on a less intense level. 

After four months, Milano underwent a blood-drawn antibody test. This time, it showed she was positive for COVID antibodies. The actress alleged: "I just want you to be aware that our testing system is flawed."
