Tammin Sursok has recently opened up about the “scary phase” of COVID-19, as her husband, Sean McEwen, has tested negative for the virus.
On Friday, she posted a candid video on her Instagram Stories, revealing the “scary phase” of coronavirus and the “disruption” the virus has caused.
The 37-year-old actress said, “Here’s the thing, once you’re past the scary phase and your loved one is okay, it’s still such a disruption to your life, and your kids’ life, and the person who is sick’s life. My husband is still very weak. He’s lost 15 pounds in two weeks.”
Talking about the virus, Sursok said, “We all just need to realize that it’s still around. I never thought that after a year that this will be affecting us. The fatigue of all this get overwhelming — I get it. It’s happening to me too.”
Still, she believes “there will be some light at the end of the tunnel and we will get back to our normal life.”
The Pretty Little Liars star captioned the video, “Be safe and take care of the people around you too,”
In another post, Sursok confirmed that McEwen had finally tested negative for COVID-19.
Earlier this month, she spoke about her husband’s COVID-19 diagnosis, sharing how difficult it had been to find medical help for McEwen.
Tearfully, she said, “It’s just been a really scary time. I can’t have all of you on here and lie to you and pretend everything’s okay when it’s not.”
She went on to say, “COVID is real. It’s scary. And I know some people just get a cold, or they feel like they just have a cold or a flu, but some people don’t. And my husband is really fit and healthy and all the hospitals are full.”
Last week, Sursok revealed that McEwen experienced “crushing fatigue” while struggling with COVID-19.
She said at the time, “A doctor says he’s going into the post-viral part of COVID, so he’s really exhausted.”
“Sure, some people get sick for 10 days,” she continued. “Some people have no symptoms. And then there are some other people like my husband — who is fit, and young, and has no preexisting conditions and has no immune problems — who really gets affected by it. You just don’t know.” The article was published in PEOPLE.
