The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Peter Thomas announced that he contracted the highly contagious coronavirus on his social media.
The reality star explains the importance of wearing masks and gloves and urges his followers to practice social distancing as he painfully describes what life is like with the coronavirus.
On his Instagram, Thomas reveals that for over a week he has been bedridden by the virus.
The Jamaican club owner and former music industry staple said that he had taken the COVID-19 test five times before testing positive for the disease. Speaking with low energy and measured breaths, while lying down and resting on a pillow he detailed how severe his symptoms are.
He states that his side-effects are gastroparesis and that he is experiencing symptoms like diarrhea, abdominal pain, cramps, and chills.
“I am going to tell you something, wear your masks, wear gloves, practice social distance,” Thomas said.
In his explanation, Thomas shares that he ignored some social distancing practices, admitting he removed his mask and surrounded himself with fans.
“People come up to me, asking for pictures all of the time. They want me to have the mask off and they want to hug me because they say they like me. And I took those pictures.”
Despite accommodating his fans, Thomas was nervous about contracting the virus.
“Every time I took those pictures, I am just praying to God that I am not going to get [COVID-19].
“My stomach has been a complete wreck,” Thomas said.
Thomas said he has to stay inside for an additional seven days. After that, he is scheduled to take two tests. Only if his latest test results are negative will the influencer be allowed to go outside.
It is unclear where Thomas was when he recorded his video.
