Last September 28, actress Carmi Martin shared that she had tested positive for the COVID-19 virus after undergoing a test before starting work on a new Star Cinema project.

In her latest Instagram post, she wrote, “Last September 13, I went to Philippine Red Cross for a swab test that was a requirement for a digital series under Star Cinema, then the following day got the result that I was positive of COVID-19. I really felt bad because I have no symptoms except for my BP shoot up, and also for not able to do the project since I was so prepared and really was so excited to do it,” she shared.

The 57-year-old actress, who first joined showbiz in 1976 as a co-host on the now defunct variety show Student Canteen, shared that she used her required quarantine time productively.


“The two week quarantine became A HONEYMOON WITH GOD. I spent each day with prayers and praying for others , singing beautiful songs for our Lord and listening to excellent preachings each day. Having a positive attitude, exercising and eating healthy food specially prepared by @gourmadebychefroblau made me recover well,” she shared in her social media post.
