Alyssa Milano Tests Positive for COVID-19 Antibodies After 3 Negative Results: 'I Thought I Was Dying'



The former Who's The Boss? star added that she will be donating her plasma in the future "with hopes that I might save a life."

"Please take care of yourselves. Please wash your hands and wear a mask and social distance," she told fans. "I don’t want anyone to feel the way I felt. Be well. I love you all (well, maybe not the trolls. Just the kind people.) ❤️."

Testing positive for COVID-19 antibodies indicates that a person has been exposed to the novel coronavirus. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has warned that the antibody tests currently available may not be accurate and should not be used to determine if someone is immune to COVID-19.

As of Wednesday, there have been more than 4,821,600 cases of COVID-19 in the United States and 158,300 deaths from coronavirus-related illnesses, according to a New York Times database.
