Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer has confirmed that she has tested positive for coronavirus antibodies.

"We both found out we have the antibodies, so we donated our plasma," Ramona told PEOPLE.

"I had no energy," she said, speaking about her prior diagnosis of Lyme Disease. "I just wanted to stay in bed all day. I felt very tired, and I also had severe headaches."

When testing positive for Lyme, she was not tested for COVID-19.

Ramona says she got tested after daughter, Avery, fell ill.

 "She just thought maybe she had a cold or a sinus infection, because she wasn't able to taste food and she lost her sense of smell," says Ramona. "We kept her quarantined in a separate part of the home because, not realizing I had already been sick, I was afraid my Lyme disease had weakened my immune system and I would be more vulnerable to catching an illness."

She says both she and Avery tested positive but her ex-husband, Mario Singer, tested negative for the virus.
