Michael Rooker, who represented ‘Merle Dixon’ in AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ told fans that he won the war against COVID-19 after putting up a pretty good fight.
The ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ star shared a statement through Facebook, alongside a picture of his negative test result. He began his words by saying that having novel coronavirus was quite a battle and added:
“And as in any war, ALL is fair. And IN the middle of this epic battle I’ve come to the conclusion that there ain’t a whole heck of a lot one can do externally, to fight off COVID-19 once it has gotten into your body. This is my personal opinion, definitely not the conclusion of some scientific study. The real battle takes place internally, on a cellular level.”
As remember, the actor revealed to have had been tested positive for COVID-19 in previous days, just before the subsequent announcements of Tiffany Haddish, Alyssa Milano, and Dwayne Johnson.
The actor continued by saying that he decided not to take any extra medicines or vitamins or supplements, however, he felt like crap and semi-human during the battle:
“I felt that if my immune system was not already prepared for this battle loading up with all this extra stuff would only do me damage as kidneys and liver would have been gravely stressed… In the process of fighting off COVID-19, I could feel and see the results of those daily battles, by how I felt and looked the next day. I was either feeling like crap, or pretty dang good, semi-human in fact.”
Then the 65-year-old actor revealed that the battle came to an end, and his body won the war. He concluded:
“So, just so y’all know the end result of all those daily battles has come to an end. My body has won the WAR! COVID put up a pretty good fight… but bottom line, it ended up getting its a** knocked out! Buy my immune system.
1,2, punch to the head, 2 body shots, and a left hook right uppercut combination.
End of story…”
