Michael V., also known as Bitoy, announced in his new vlog that he has tested positive for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
In his video uploaded on his official YouTube channel on July 20, the Kapuso comedian documented his experience being isolated until he found out that he is already a carrier of the deadly virus.
He shared that he had flu-like symptoms and experienced having a weird sensation in his nasal area. He also lost his sense of smell.
"Siyempre nag-isolate na kaagad ako, nag-quarantine na kaagad ako. I took medicine. Nagpa-check up ako sa doctor online, I got better the following day. Hindi naman tumaas nang todo 'yung temperature ko. I mean, the highest was 37.1,” he detailed.
"Again, hindi biro itong mga nangyayari na 'to. I just wish na hindi niyo isantabi lang, hindi niyo balewalain 'yung mga nararamdaman niyo. Sundin pa rin natin 'yung protocols, 'yung social distancing, 'yung PPE. Saka as much as possible, kung kaya niyong sa bahay lang kayo 'wag na kayong lumabas," he suggested before getting tested with COVID-19.
Bitoy learned that he is positive for the viral disease on his eighth day of isolation.
“That's it. Positive. Just as what we suspected early on," he revealed. "Alam kong hindi normal 'yung nawala yung pang-amoy ko and I was counting na may kinalaman talaga 'yun sa COVID pero I was praying na sana wala, sana allergy lang but it turns out. Tutuloy lang natin 'yung mga sinabi sa'tin na kailagan gawin and we'll get through this, we've been through worse. Sobrang nami-miss ko na 'yung pamilya ko."
