Mia Farrow revealed her daughter Quincy is battling the novel coronavirus.
In a tweet Friday, the 75-year-old actress asked social media for well wishes as Quincy was forced to seek medical attention at a hospital.
"A personal request. If you would be so kind, would you please send up a prayer for my daughter Quincy," Farrow tweeted. "Today she had no alternative but to go the hospital for help in her struggle against the coronavirus."
Quincy turned 26 in January this year and was adopted by Farrow. Her older brother, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Ronan Farrow, told Vanity Fair in a 2013 interview that she was attending college at the time and studying to be an aid worker.
Quincy is married and has a baby daughter named Coretta.
Quincy is the latest in a string of notable persons to become infected with coronavirus.
Reality star Todd Chrisley revealed on the April 8 episode of his podcast "Chrisley Confessions" that he is recovering after testing positive for coronavirus. "I have been battling corona for 3 weeks. I was in the hospital for 4 and a half days, fever between 100 to 103 (degrees) and it has been the sickest I have ever been on this earth," he said.
CNN anchor and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's brother, Chris Cuomo, has also been diagnosed with the potentially fatal disease and has been keeping his viewers updated on his battle.
"I feel better than I deserve and I now know that I can't just take it from this thing," Cuomo said during his show Monday. "When the fever spikes you just want to curl up in a ball and stay there for the next six, seven hours and you can't. You've got to bundle up your clothes, you've got to start drowning yourself in fluid."
As of Friday, the United States has surpassed 16,000 deaths as cases continue to increase, while almost 25,000 people have recovered nationwide. Confirmed cases in the U.S. exceeded 465,000. The death toll was nearing 6,000 one week ago, but there have been nearly 2,000 deaths in each of the last two days, according to the Johns Hopkins University data dashboard.
