The Harry Potter author said she was "fully recovered" but had not been tested for COVID-19. That's when she revealed she had likely been suffering from the virus.

'I really am completely recovered and wanted to share a technique that's recommended by doctors, costs nothing, has no nasty side effects but could help you/your loved ones a lot, as it did me.

Jo responded to the tweet by writing: "Thanks x You stay safe!"

She said: "Thank you for your kind and lovely messages!"

After sharing the message, Rowling received a string of supportive messages, including from Fifty Shades Of Grey author EL James.

The author revealed that she has now fully recovered from her COVID-19 symptoms. She's recently followed up with a tweet saying that her taste and smell have not come back yet.

In recent days, the virus has tripled the number of people dying in the city compared with an average day. Some hospitals have needed two or three of the trailers, and most trailers are full, he added.

According to Bloomberg, the most recent coronavirus statistics out of the United Kingdom see a downturn in reported deaths: 621 new deaths were reported on Sunday, down from 708 on Saturday, leaving total deaths from the pandemic at 4,934.

Rowling is one of many celebrities who is doing their part to bring a smile to their fans' faces during the global pandemic with the launch of Harry Potter At Home, a website packed with activities and ideas for the whole family while quarantined at home.

The doctor in the video explained how adopting the technique at the early stages of the infection can lead to an early recovery. The doctor, via a YouTube video, suggests taking two sets of five deep breaths in, and on the sixth breath taking a "big cough and covering your mouth" to open up the throat and lungs.

"What I need you to understand is that once you have an active infection, you need to be getting a good amount of air in to the base of your lungs. You will do this twice and then lay flat on your front, taking slightly deeper breaths for 10 minutes", said the doctor. "It is an absolute travesty and failure of our government to not make testing more widely accessible", she wrote.

"People have challenges you know nothing about".
