I met a group of people who tested positive because I am currently recovering from the virus,” she wrote.
The 38-year-old singer added that she went to bed after starting to have symptoms such as fever, sore throat and body aches. Zhang explained that her symptoms were similar to Covid patients but only lasted a day. “After sleeping for a day and a night, all my symptoms disappeared… I just drank a lot of water and took vitamin C and didn’t take any medicine to get better,” she added.
