Journalist Cristina Ranzolin, who presents Jornal do Almoço on RBS TV, affiliated with Rede Globo in Rio Grande do Sul, reported on social media that she was diagnosed with mononucleosis, a viral disease. Since last Sunday, the 29th, she has been admitted to a hospital in the city of Porto Alegre.
Cristina shared the situation with her followers, explaining how it all started. She reported that, since returning from vacation, she felt more tired than usual, something she attributed to the inevitable adjustment period after the break. However, the situation developed unexpectedly.
“I thought that was it, right? That I was a little more tired. And I carried on, I carried on. The other day I caught a wind, then I got a little cold. I started self-medicating, which we should never do, right? ?”, revealed the journalist.
However, a warning sign appeared when the fever appeared. She then consulted her doctors and underwent a series of tests. Concern about the possibility of it being a case of Covid-19 was soon discarded, as the result was negative. Despite this, Cristina’s health did not improve, and last Sunday, the situation worsened.
“I got really bad. Then the doctors ended up admitting me, I’ve been in the hospital since Sunday, undergoing a series of tests, a check-up”, reported the journalist. During the battery of tests, a virus called Epstein-Barr, responsible for mononucleosis, was identified. In Cristina’s case, the disease manifested itself causing a lot of tiredness and intense fever.
Despite the hospitalization, the journalist stated that she is now better. “Now, fortunately, I’m better, I think the peak of this disease has passed.” However, doctors continue to investigate the possibility of an associated bacterial infection, which justifies his stay in the hospital.
The presenter, with an upbeat tone, expressed her desire to return to her professional activities soon and ended her words with a message to her viewers and admirers: “I hope that soon, I can be back. I just want to tell you and say that I also miss our JA [Jornal do Almoço].”
