The “Harry Potter” author shared a health update on Twitter Monday morning, assuring her millions of followers that she’s since “fully recovered,” although she hasn’t been tested for the respiratory illness.
She also passed along a bit of wisdom from a U.K. doctor on the recommendation of her husband, Neil Murray, himself a doctor.
“Please watch this doc from Queens Hospital explain how to relieve respiratory symptoms,” she wrote alongside 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.”

In a separate tweet, Rowling thanked her followers for their concern and urged them to stay safe.
“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,” she wrote. “Stay safe, everyone x.”
