Actress Alyssa Milano says that she's losing her hair after her months-long battle with Covid-19

"Thought I'd show you what #Covid19 does to your hair," Milano tweeted along with the video. "Please take this seriously."

The coronavirus has caused incredible devastation across the world and one of the most famous faces has her own story to tell.

Actress Alyssa Milano, who Star Lord named his spaceship after, has been battling the Coronavirus since March, when she was experiencing fevers and headaches. She took to Twitter on Sunday to share a video on the hair loss she's experienced since the virus took hold.

"Thought I'd show you what #Covid19 does to your hair," Milano tweeted along with the video. "Please take this seriously."

"I just wanted to show you the amount of hair that is coming out of my head as a result of Covid," Milano said in the video.

Holding up a large clump of hair in front of the camera she added, "One brushing, this is my hair loss from Covid-19. Wear a d*** mask."

In recent interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo on PrimeTime and infectious disease expert Dr. William Schaffner last week, the actress said she was waiting for advice from doctors on what to do now that she is in recovery, noting that it's not clear what next steps she should take.

"My question is there is no guidance on what to do once you recover. I don't know if I should go get my heart checked, my lungs checked. There's concerns about vascular system. Do I need to go get a panel for all of that? There's no guidance because this is all so new."

"This was me on April 2nd after being sick for 2 weeks," she posted along with a photo showing her wearing a breathing apparatus. "I had never been this kind of sick. Everything hurt. Loss of smell," she wrote on Instagram. "It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. I couldn't breathe. I couldn't keep food in me. I lost 9 pounds in 2 weeks.

"I basically had every Covid symptom," Milano wrote, adding that although she had tested negative for the virus twice, she has since tested positive for antibodies.
