In her latest vlog posted on April 2 called “My COVID-19 Journey,” Angeline Quinto revealed that she tested positive for COVID-19 last March 27. The singer underwent another RT-PCR test when she found out that she had interaction with someone who had tested positive.
“Dahil bumisita dito yung tao na yun. Kasabay ko kumain. Siyempre pagkakain, walang mask. Nakapag-kuwentuhan kami,” she shared at the start of the 25-minute vlog. The YouTube video chronicles the first half of her 14-day self-isolation at home.
The 31-year-old singer-actress, who is currently part of the cast of Huwag Kang Mangamba, made sure to isolate herself at home even while waiting for the results of her latest test. “May mga nararamdaman din ako na hindi tama. Ewan ko baka napabayaan ko rin ang sarili ko. So natataranta ako. Natatakot ako para sa mga katrabaho ko at para sa lahat ng kasama ko dito sa bahay. Sana maging maayos lahat,” she stated.
Even while experiencing weakness, fever, diarrhea, and loss of sense of smell, Angeline said she was thankful her late mom was not there when she got sick.
“Buti na lang wala si Mama Bob dito kasi kung nandito pa ang Mama, baka lalo akong matataranta at mas hindi ko alam ang gagawin ko. Hindi talaga ako puwede lumabas. Seryoso, ang hirap nito, hindi ako sanay na matagal walang trabaho. Parang pakiramdam ko kasi mas lalo akong magkakasakit pagka ganun. Nakakalungkot talaga kasi walang puwedeng dumikit sa akin, walang puwedeng pumunta dito sa kuwarto. Malungkot kumain mag-isa,” she shared.
In the video, Angeline showed how she has ben taking care of herself everyday, by checking her heart rate and oxygen with a oxymeter, gargling with a bacteria-killing mouthwash and drinking boiled ginger with honey.
On March 29, which was the third day of her isolation, Angeline got the news that her companions at home all tested negative on their RT-PCR tests.
“Sobrang thankful ako dahil wala akong nahawa sa kanila. At sana hanggang matapos ko itong quarantine ko ay maging maayos at wala akong mahawahan kahit isa dito sa amin. Thank you Lord,” she said.
On day 7 of her quarantine, the Kapamilya singer was happy to share that her sense of taste and smell is slowly returning. As a reward to herself for making it halfway, Angeline had lugaw with chicken and egg.
“Because lugaw is life. Lugaw is essential. Perfect pag wala ka masyado panlasa. Ang sarap nito. The best lugaw. I love lugaw,” she said.
Angeline is expected to post the second week of her COVID-19 journey in a succeeding vlog.
