JK Rowling has said she is “fully recovered” after suffering “all symptoms” of coronavirus.
The Harry Potter author said she had not been tested but used a breathing technique to get air into the bases of her lungs and shared a video of a doctor advising how to do it.
She wrote on Twitter: “Please watch this doc from Queens Hospital explain how to relieve respiratory symptoms.
“For last two weeks I’ve had all symptoms of C19 (though haven’t been tested) and did this on doc husband’s advice.
“I’m fully recovered and technique helped a lot.”
In the video the doctor shows how to take deep breaths, hold the breaths and then cough, before lying flat on the stomach to allow air into the lungs.
After sharing the message, Rowling received a string of supportive messages, including from Fifty Shades Of Grey author EL James.
Rowling later tweeted: “Thank you for your kind and lovely messages. 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.
“Stay safe, everyone.”
