Writing on Instagram, Wilson added: “I feel extremely unlucky but I do believe this is a huge wake up call, Covid is a serious thing and when it comes it hits very hard.
“I’d be stupid not to say I wasn’t scared. I’m so lucky for all my family, friends and support people. I can’t believe how much love I have been shown and I’m forever in debt to these people.”
The 27-year-old Wilson competes for the LA Current and was unable to race in Match 8 of the ISL season in Naples after returning a positive Covid-19 test.
“It’s been a crazy few months and I believe being run down physically and mentally may have made me more susceptible,” Wilson said on Instagram before thanking her teammates for their support.
In a separate Instagram Stories post on Sunday, she said she “already feel(s) so much better” and encouraged her followers to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
“The biggest thing I can say is please get vaccinated,” Wilson wrote.
“I have no idea how I would feel right now if I wasn’t and it’s so scary to think what this virus can do even when vaccinated. Look after yourself and everyone around you.”
