There's sadly no cure for corona virus yet and while many of us and our loved ones have been struck down with the illness, the good news has been how people are fighting it off.
One of those lucky people includes presenter and actress Donna Air, who revealed she had sought a private test to confirm she had contracted COVID-19 and had been in self-isolation for the past three weeks.
While battling the infection Donna, 40, explained how she took a concoction of vitamins to help and she's not the only celebrity to go to extreme lengths to stay healthy and prevent any infection where possible as model Naomi Campbell shared her tips earlier this month.
Donna, who previously dated the Duchess of Cambridge's brother James Middleton, explained in a defiant message that she had tested positive and self-isolated 18 days ago.
"Thankfully symptoms improved shortly after and my loved ones are not displaying any signs of the virus. I will continue to follow government guidelines & in the meantime I am sending masses of love to you all especially those on the front line."

She added: "I am aware what a privilege it is to be able access tests privately, so I have donated some to friends working for the @NHS. I feel relieved having consulted my GP who has confirmed it is safe to see my daughter again.
"Happy to answer questions on symptoms or give info on what I did to boost my immune system when I felt at my worst."
She then followed through on her promise, sharing a list of immune system boosters she used while feeling ill, instructing fans to take 3000mg of vitamin c, 2000 international units of vitamin D3, 40mg of magnesium, 20mg of zinc and 100mcg of selenium daily.
Donna continued: "There are obviously no guarantees with anything, but I did this to boost my immune system. I have no idea if it worked or not but decided to give a go and wanted to share with those of you asking. Also I read that liposomal vit c is the most effective [sic] ,"
While Donna's own self-medication helped her, supermodel Naomi Campbell shared her own preventative measures especially as she had been travelling so much prior to the lockdown.
