Praise Dumbledore! J.K. Rowling wants to help others experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. The 54-year-old British Harry Potter scribe revealed on Monday on Twitter that she has been experiencing symptoms of the virus for the past two weeks, sharing a breathing technique she says helped her. 

"Please watch this doc from Queens Hospital explain how to relieve respiratory symptoms," she wrote, linking to a YouTube video. "For last 2 weeks I've had all symptoms of C19 (tho haven't been tested) & did this on doc husband's advice. I'm fully recovered & technique helped a lot."

The famed author went on to thank her fans for their support, adding, "Thank you for your kind and lovely messages! I really am completely recovered and wanted to share a technique that’s recommended by doctors, costs nothing, has no nasty side effects but could help you/your loved ones a lot, as it did me. Stay safe, everyone x" 

Rowling recently returned to social media after a brief hiatus to help others get through their quarantines. In her time at home, she launched her new site, Harry Potter at Home, for parents and readers struggling in quarantine.
