Actress Alyssa Milano has said her hair is falling out as a result of coronavirus and urged people to wear face masks to stop the spread.
The Charmed actress shared a video on Instagram in which she is brushing her hair, to demonstrate clumps of hair coming out.
She said: “I just wanted to show you the amount of hair that is coming out of my head as a result of Covid.
She ends the video by showing the hair that has come out to the camera and said: “One brushing. This is my hair loss from Covid-19. Wear a damn mask.”
She captioned it: “#longhauler. Thought I’d show you what #Covid19 does to your hair. Please take this seriously. #WearADamnMask.”
Milano has previously said she felt like she was dying while suffering from coronavirus.
She revealed on Instagram that she has tested positive for Covid-19 antibodies after three earlier tests suggested she had not contracted the virus.
She shared the message alongside an image of herself using breathing equipment after she fell ill in March.
