Cristiano Ronaldo’s Sister Hospitalized From Covid-19 After Calling It a Hoax

Be careful what you call a hoax because COVID doesn’t care what you believe. Katia Aveiro, the sister of Cristiano Ronaldo, has been hospitalized suffering from pneumonia after contracting COVID-19 after earlier calling the disease “the biggest fraud I’ve ever seen”.

In an Instagram post Ronaldo’s sister revealed how she tested positive on July 17th and had been recuperating at him in isolation, but then developed pneumonia and was hospitalized.

“[It’s/This is the] last type of post I would like to make, I tried not to do it in the last few days, but as news travels fast, and out of respect for those who follow me and care for me and mine, I will share the truth with you,” Aveiro said.

“I was caught by the damned [virus]. Since the 17th of July that I’ve been positive I’ve been in isolation and at home very well, [with a] few symptoms but sticking to the protocol as the rules dictate, everyone at home got it except for my mother (thank God).

“The videos that I posted in the street were already made before I tested positive (a clear example that on this side they only know a few things about the real truth of the internet, or rather don’t believe in everything) unfortunately since the 23rd I got worse (the only one who weakened {smiley} right away, me, the strongest and the cook [too], of all those tested at home).

She continued: “I got pneumonia as a result of the damn virus, in short, I was admitted to hospital and here I am, following everything properly, recuperating thanks to God and thanks to this service from Sesaram (at Funchal Hospital) with a marvelous medical team (young mostly but craques [stars]) and with an incredible story to tell.

“I carry on with the same thoughts and the same beliefs, it’s not a damn virus planted by the greed of this world that will knock me down, and the irony of fate I came to find in this little corner of heaven, which is my land.”


Wishing our best to Ronaldo’s sister on a speedy recovery. At this point no one needs to point out the fact she called the pandemic a hoax.

It’s a hoax for all those doubters until they are actually affected by it.
