COUNTRY singer Kalie Shorr has tested posted positive for coronavirus and says her "entire body is in pain".
The 25-year-old revealed her diagnosis on Twitter and described how horrible the symptoms felt.
She wrote: "Despite being quarantined (except for a handful of trips for groceries) for three weeks, I managed to contract COVID 19."
"I'm feeling significantly better, but it's proof how dangerous and contagious this is. It's endlessly frustrating to see people not taking this seriously."
Kalie described how coronavirus felt: "The first few days were absolutely miserable. I've never felt like that before."
"My entire body was in pain, and my fever was like riding a wave. I completely lost my sense of taste and smell."
The Fight Like A Girl singer had already hosted a social distancing concert after her tour was postponed and surprised fans by announcing she would release a new song on Friday.
How Do We Do This is a duet with Ian McConell but some fans accused the singer of faking the virus to promote the song.
One Twitter user wrote: "I’m almost positive you made this up. The day before you’re watching Tiger King, and then today youre sicker than you’ve ever been and then 8 hours later, you’re promoting your new song."
But Kalie had no time for the Twitter sceptics, pointing out that nobody would want to fake being that sick.
She wrote: "I was at my worst a week ago, the test results finally came in today. I was speaking past tense. Also- you think corona gives a shit when my song comes out?"
"Trust me, I’m irritated too. This is so rude to insinuate I would do something that insane. Go crawl back in your hole."
Kalie later pointed out to her fans her illness had made her irritable, but she would also not tolerate Twitter trolls.
"There is 0% chance of me taking the high road with twitter trolls when I am trapped in my house with no other drama on the horizon. Sometimes the New England just needs to come out, you know?"
The country singer did muster the strength to venture into her backyard a couple of days ago, which the first time she had been outside in a while.
Kalie compared it to being back in high school: "Ventured outside for the first time in awhile, it kind of feels like July in high school? No one has jobs, we are all sleeping in, no idea what day it is, can’t really spend money, not allowed to go anywhere."
She also spent her time in isolation coloring her hair purple, describing it as her "quarantine breakdown".
Kalie wrote on Instagram: "I dyed my hair purple, made a photo wall, and I can’t stop listening to Arctic Monkeys. Quarantine has turned me into the Tumblr girl of my 2012 dreams."
But going from her natural blonde to the chic purple look may have come at a bad time.
Kalie revealed a big audition opportunity: "Impulsively dying my hair purple during quarantine was all fun and games until my agent asked me to do a self tape for a really big movie and now I have… purple hair."
Other celebrities to contract coronavirus include actors, Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson and Idris Elba.
There are currently 164, 284 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the US and 3,171 fatalities.
