Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has revealed that she has been suffering from “all symptoms” of COVID-19 over the past two weeks— although hasn't been tested for it.

The writer shared the news via her Twitter account as she linked to a video featuring advice on how to relieve the respiratory symptoms of the virus while stating that she had followed it on the recommendation of her husband Neil Murray, a doctor.

She added that she has “fully recovered.”

Last week saw Rowling launch “Harry Potter at Home,” an online hub featuring entertainment based around her books on the boy wizard.

Upon its launch, she said parents, teachers and carers "working to keep children amused" might be in need of "a bit of magic."

The website features quizzes, puzzles and crafting videos, claiming to cast "a Banishing Charm on boredom."
