“So, in-isolate namin siya. Nagpa-swab lang din kami para sigurado kasi po nakaka-praning talaga. Hindi namin alam kung san ang kalaban namin, kung ano yung magiging kalaban namin, especially po may anak ako.”
At one point in the video, the actress cried as they discussed the measures they had to take to protect themselves against the virus.
"Tsaka mga pangga, isipin niyo, sa kapabayaan ng isa, lahat maapektuhan. Kaya dapat sana mag-ingat tayo. Kasi, mga pangga, hindi siya biro. Alam naman natin yun, no?
"Pero sana maging aware lang talaga tayo kung pwede pa tayong maging praning. Kung pwedeng lahat ng klase ng paglilinis gawin natin," Lovely said.
Among the safety measures, the couple had to take to ensure their safety from the virus was to buy UV lights as well as an air purifier for home.
