Alyssa Milano believes it is time for celebrities to take action in helping to end the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In an interview with The Bump, the "Charmed" actress said A-listers have the power to initiate change and should be using it to "fight against the horrible lies and politicization of science and medicine."

"I tell you, it makes me so frustrated to see celebrities who have huge platforms staying away from work like this out of fear of a negative career impact. We’ve been so lucky to have the attention of people around the world who probably don’t pay as close attention to government or politics," she said.

"It’s our responsibility to our fans to help keep them safe, to fight against the horrible lies and politicization of science and medicine. We can reach people in ways that Dr. Fauci maybe can’t, and counteract some of the harm that bad leaders have done in spreading misinformation about the disease, the treatments, the preventative measures and what we need to do to take care of one another."

Commenting on vaccinations, Milano stated that they alone would not end the pandemic. 

"We need a diverse set of tools to help slow the spread of COVID-19, including diagnostics and treatments, as well as a continuance of preventive measures such as hand washing, physical distancing and mask-wearing," she said.

Milano has had her own experiences with coronavirus. Last year she revealed in an Instagram post that she had tested positive for COVID-19 and thought she was "dying." 

"Everything hurt," Milano captioned a photo of herself on what appears to be a ventilator. "Loss of smell. It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t keep food in me. I lost 9 pounds in 2 weeks. I was confused. Low grade fever. And the headaches were horrible. I basically had every Covid symptom."

Four months later and Milano added that she still experiencing lingering symptoms that include "vertigo, stomach abnormalities, irregular periods, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, zero short term memory, and general malaise."
