Anna Vakili feared her dad was dead after he collapsed with coronavirus symptoms on Boxing Day.
The Love Island star recently tested positive for Covid, along with her immediate family, describing it as the ‘worst illness’ she had ever suffered.
Speaking about the condition, she revealed her guilt that she passed the virus on to her dad, who spent Christmas Day in bed as his symptoms worsened.
The 30-year-old recalled ‘screaming and crying’ when he collapsed the following day, as she thought he had died.
’On Boxing Day he must have got up to go to the toilet, and he collapsed and hit his head on the floor – it was the scariest moment of my life,’ she said. ‘I thought he had died.
‘I ran out of my room because I heard it and I saw him lying there eyes open, having completely lost consciousness and I was screaming and crying.’
An ambulance arrived shortly after, with doctors stating that his temperature was high, causing him to become ‘confused’, which may have impacted his balance.
Anna said that her dad refused to go to hospital, instead spending the next day recovering in bed – with the virus still affecting him today.
The pharmacist first got symptoms on December 17, and started isolating at her home.
Her dad came to her house when she was still waiting for her test results, and kissed her on the cheek – something she described as ‘the biggest mistake’.
Chatting to the Sun, she admitted that she is still feeling ‘guilty’ over her actions, adding: ‘It’s so strange the emotions – it comes in waves, and you get a wave of guilt.
‘If it wasn’t for me, he wouldn’t [have got it], but at the moment I think even just leaving the house, he would have been in danger of getting it. Or picking it up on the train like I did.’
Anna previously discussed her coronavirus battle on Instagram, begging fans to take it seriously and stay safe.
‘This corona s**t is not a joke,’ she posted. ‘Been bed bound for days and now been tested positive so has Mandi.’
She also took the opportunity to share tips on what they have found to help their conditions – but stressed that people have been impacted in different ways.
They included ‘ginger lemon honey warm drinks’, vitamin D, Berocca, orange juice and painkillers.
