Speaking about the criticism she received from netizens for not distancing herself from her husband, she further said, “I wanted to be with him. That’s the instinct of a wife. You want to go and take care.”
“I don’t feel anything that would come to what people would now expect to be a symptom of coronavirus, which is really strange,” Sabrina said. “It might change in the coming weeks, and we’ll keep everyone updated. But it is worrisome that we’re sitting here, two people, and … we’re asymptomatic.”
