“Did you know we are all COVID19 survivors? Bernadette caught the virus first - early on last year, Gretch & I together over the holidays and Alvin early this year,” Karen wrote.
She then said that most of those she knew also tested positive before or recently, though their symptoms have been mild.
“There is not one family I know who has been spared from COVID but thank God most of the symptoms are mild,” she revealed.
She then expressed her gratitude for the gift of life and shared the lesson she learned from COVID infection.
“We are starting the year grateful for the gift of LIFE. Thank you Lord Jesus and our loving Father in Heaven for being the hope in our lives! Love you Jesus If there is one thing COVID has taught all of us, is not to take anyone and any day for granted,” the veteran journalist wrote.
Karen also encouraged everyone to get vaccinated to get additional protection from the deadly disease.
“Get yourself vaccinated and boostered already! Do it out for love for yourself & your family!” Karen said.

Recently, the veteran journalist hit back at a basher who had a rude remark on her and family’s recent vacation in Boracay. She received the criticism after she and her family tested positive for COVID-19. According to the basher, all Karen does is to “travel and go out with her family.” This prompted the veteran broadcaster to reply why they had the much-needed vacation.
Earlier, Karen reported that she, along with her family, tested positive for COVID-19. She expressed gratitude that they only had mild symptoms and in fact, she was still able to attend her program on ANC while recuperating at home.
