Man, we needed to hear this.

Sophie Grégoire Trudeau says she has recovered from COVID-19 after contracting the illness while on a trip to the United Kingdom earlier this month.

“I wanted to give you all an update: I am feeling so much better and have received the all clear from my physician and Ottawa Public Health,” Grégoire Trudeau wrote on Facebook in French late Saturday.

“From the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you to everyone who reached out to me with their well wishes. And to everyone who is suffering right now, I send you all my love.”

“These are challenging times. I know it’s not easy to be alone we are all social beings, me included! But just because we’re increasing the physical distance between us doesn’t mean we have to do the same emotionally,” Grégoire Trudeau wrote.

She said she’s “inspired” to see Canadians taking care of each other and working to reduce the spread of COVID-19, citing neighbours picking up groceries for each other, businesses producing necessary supplies and artists offering free performances.

“We’re going to get through this, my courageous friends and fellow Canadians, and we’re going to get through it together,” she said.

Sophie Grégoire Trudeau had flu like symptoms and a constant headache but seems to have avoided the more extreme complications from the virus. 

During this time Justin Trudeau has been in self exile and currently shows no syptoms, though he also has not yet been tested. 

I think that this week we are going to see an upswing in Cornoavirus related deaths, but also an upswing in new recoveries as people who caught it two or three weeks ago come out the other side. 

As of this post there are over 700,000 cases worldwide, with about 150,000 recoveries.
