After coming out with a vlog earlier this month revealing she had contracted COVID-19 while on the set of her soap Bagong Umaga, Heaven Peralejo said that unlike her other co-stars who also tested positive, she ended up with more severe symptoms.

Naging critical kasi umabot sa point na kailangan ko ma-confine for seven days. So with the help of ABS-CBN and yung DEO productions natulungan ako with everything that I needed at that time. Hindi naman nila ako pinabayaan,” she shared during the Bagong Umaga finale presscon last April 27.

The 21-year-old actress shared her realizations after recovering from the virus which she hopes that people will take seriously.

Dapat i-take ng lahat na it’s a serious case and ang natutunan ko dun is life is short nga talaga and we should be more present. Kasi masyado tayong nag-iisip for the future eh. Iniisip ko ano ang next kong work? Ano ang gagawin ko para kumayod? Ganyan ganyan. Pero hindi natin na-appreciate kung anong meron tayo ngayon. So yun yung isa sa mga nakuha kong lessons nung nagkaroon ako ng COVID. Mas naging appreciative ako and mas naging super close talaga ako sa family to the point na mas gusto ko ipakita sa kanila every second of the day na mahal na mahal ko sila. Kasi hindi ko alam baka biglang may mangyari na naman, hindi man ako pero ayoko na i-take yung risk, ayoko na rin mag-regret,” she explained.

With her teleserye Bagong Umaga now on its finale week, Heaven said she was happy to be healthy again in time to shoot their last remaining scenes.

Ngayon okay na ako. Naka-recover na ako and nakapag-taping na ako for the finale. Masaya ang puso kasi kasi nakatapos ng show. Ito ang first show ko at mahal na mahal ko itong show na ‘to. Kaya talagang all positivity and nahanap ko din yung peace,” she said.
