Many celebrities in the Philippines reacted to the recent social media post of Sylvia Sanchez where she revealed that she tested positive for the novel coronavirus disease.
KAMI learned that the award-winning actress disclosed that she and her husband Art Atayde have contracted the deadly virus and are now doing their best to recover.
The “Pamilya Ko” star mentioned that they are now isolated to avoid infecting other people and they are already getting better as days pass by.
Sylvia also called on the individuals whom she got in contact with in the last few days to monitor their condition and strictly comply with the quarantine protocols.
“On March 24, my husband and I were brought to Cardinal Santos as I was having chills and he had cough and shortness of breath. We were made to take the covid-19 swab test and since then, Art and I have self-isolated. A week later, we finally received the results and we both came out positive for COVID19,” she wrote.
“We would like to request those whom we saw prior to the community quarantine to monitor for symptoms of shortness of breath, cough, fever, LBM and sore throat. Art and I are getting better each day. Although this is slower than our usual recovery, we know that with prayers and strict compliance with our doctor’s orders, we will get there,” she added.
