Sharon Stone reveals her sister, who has lupus, is battling COVID-19

Sharon Stone has revealed that her younger sister, who suffers from lupus, along with her husband are hospitalized with the coronavirus – and blamed “one of you Non-Mask wearers” for their plight.

“My sister Kelly, who already has lupus, now has COVID-19. This is her hospital room. One of you Non-Mask wearers did this,” the 62-year-old “Basic Instinct” actress said on Instagram on Saturday.

“She does not have an immune system. The only place she went was the pharmacy,” Stone continued.

“There is no testing in her county unless you are symptomatic, & then it’s 5 day wait for results. Can YOU FACE THIS ROOM ALONE? Wear a mask! For yourself and others. Please,” she wrote.

Lupus, a systemic disease in which people’s immune system attacks their own organs and tissues, causes inflammation in various parts of the body, including the skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart and lungs, according to the Lupus Foundation of America.

On Friday, Kelly shared an image of her and her husband Bruce Singer during a March 13 trip.

“Drove to our paradise in Montana. We thought covid wouldn’t and couldn’t find us. No shopping, no parties, barely saw a human. Now fighting for a breath. you don’t want covid,” she wrote.

Kelly later posted a video from her hospital room.

“I beg you to know that this is real. I’m gasping for every breath without oxygen,” she said haltingly. “Please do this for the people that you love. stand behind more tests, more masks, demanding everyone wear a mask. You never, ever want to feel like this. I promise you.”

And in a separate video, she said she was feeling better while on Remdesivir.

“I’m grateful for this incredible find to help reduce the viral load. Remdesivir coupled with steroids and oxygen and the great care of the front-line workers,” she said.

On Sunday, Sharon shared a lengthy video on Instagram captioned: “VOTE TO LIVE.”

“As many of you know, I posted about my sister being in the hospital in a COVID room and that she has Lupus and she’s fighting for her life. I didn’t let you know that her husband Bruce is also in a COVID room in the same ward, fighting for his life, and that they stayed at home as long as they could,” she said.

“In Montana, where they live, you can’t get tested unless you’re symptomatic, and then you don’t get your test results for five days. Also, the people that they came in contact with, like my mother who’s had two heart attacks, five stents and a pacemaker in the last five months, couldn’t get a test because she wasn’t symptomatic even though she could’ve been near asymptomatic contact that gave them COVID,” Sharon continued.

“The nurses in the hospital that are taking care of them can’t get tested because they don’t have tests to test them with. Those nurses are risking their lives and cannot get tested,” she said, adding that her grandmother and godmother also died of the disease.
