Jolin was supposed to attend once again Milan Fashion Week (02/19 – 02/27) this year.
But during Chinese New Year (February 16th), Jolin had acute gastroenteritis.
On the day before her departure for Milan (February 18th), she went to a doctor who told her that her gastroenteritis turned into a viral infection which spread to her eyes and ears.
As a consequence Jolin’s travel to Milan has been canceled by fear that the virus might spread to her brain, and she had to be hospitalized.
Her agent stressed that the virus is not life-threatening and that her appetite and physical strength are slowly recovering.
He added that it’s the first time since her debut that she canceled work because of illness.
Jolin declared on Instagram (picture below): “Thanks to my beloved @bulgariofficial Bulgari Team Joyce Lilly and Rebecca ~ Thank you for your beautiful greetings and your heart. Really sorry I did not take good care of myself, missed this year’s big show. #LookforwardtoBvlgarishow”
She might be discharged from the hospital in a couple of days, and is expected to resume work in March.
