There's only one Goopy way to have Covid, and that's to have had it 'early on' and been among the initial adopters of the disease back in 2020.

Presumably, Goop has been working out how to spin it since last year: what's the point in having a vagina that smells like actual bergamot and a colon you could eat your dinner off if respiratory diseases can still penetrate your barrier of light and love? If Gwyneth was one of the first to get Covid-19, what has it all been for? The genital steaming? The coconut aminos?

Last week Gwyneth revealed on Goop that Covid had left her with some long-term fatigue and brain-fog symptoms, which she was healing with a 'Longer-Term Detox' and a predictably Goopy list of products like hiking necklaces and infrared sauna blankets, all available to buy in her shop. Gwyneth's power to shock and horrify has gradually eroded over the years, but this touched a nerve: there's nothing like a pandemic to throw the wealth gap into relief.
