Kasama ng isang malungkot na selfie, inamin ng former Ang TV and Home Along Da Riles star na si Maybelyn dela Cruz sa kanyang social media account na positibo siya sa sakit na COVID-19. Dito ikinuwento ng former child star na sumama siya sa isang relief operations sa Cagayan at sumunod sa protocols upang maiwasan na mahawa ng nakamamatay na virus.
Nagsabi din si Maybelyn na magpa-swab test na rin ang kanyang nakasalamuha at nakasama sa nakaraang mga araw para maging safe at di na maka infect ng iba.
Narito ang full text ng status ni Maybelyn:
“And... I have COVID.
“As most of you already know, I recently participated in relief operations in the Cagayan region. Following health guidelines, I observed voluntary self-quarantine in a separate room in our home and subsequently subjected myself to swab testing.
“It was something I was hoping would not happen, but it has. I was informed just last night that I tested positive for COVID-19. I then immediately coordinated with the city focal person, called the hospital, and was admitted. Fortunately, I only have mild symptoms; I feel well, and I am being closely monitored. My family is scheduled for swab testing on Monday.
“My husband, Michael, and I would like to take this opportunity to inform those who had close contact with us as we understand that it is a necessary step for the safety and protection of all concerned. As responsible members of our community, our family appreciates the importance of health protocols in order to break the chain of transmission.
“We thank you for your well wishes, support and prayers.
“We hope that your families stay safe in these difficult times.
Ilang artista na din ang nga-positibo sa COVID-19. Kabilang na dito sin Alex Gonzaga, Enzo Pineda, Sylvia Sanchez, atbp.
