My neighbor and friend Jilla Nadimi, who was the 2018 St. Paul Winter Carnival Queen of the Snows, has gone public with her story as the 22nd identified case of Covid-19 in Minnesota. She is now well on the way to recovery. Her video, which has gone viral — currently over 22,000 views — is embedded below.
Jilla is 29 years old and in robust health. Yet the virus laid her low. Her description of the symptoms during what the medical community called a “medium” case of Covid-19 is harrowing.
