KC Concepcion took to social media to share her COVID experience which she revealed had a neurological effect on her.

"I have my dearest doctor, the brilliant Dr. Albert Recio @harvardhopkinsmd to thank, for acting urgently, and arresting a possible paralysis the other day due to a neurological effect COVID had on me," the actress revealed on her Instagram Stories.

She relayed that she experienced changes in her motor skills when she contracted COVID.


"What I thought was a mild bout turned into something much more serious overnight. I felt a change in my motor skills and also knew it was hitting my brain... it's like nothing I'd ever experienced before," she shared.

KC relayed that her doctor put her under medication immediately to combat the effects of COVID.

“Doc urgently prescribed me the exact meds I needed at exactly the right time—and by anticipating the progress of COVID in my body, he put me on the road to recovery," she said.

The actress added, "It’s my 6th day today since first onset of symptoms and I am still weak but regaining strength slowly but surely! I am forever indebted to you doc for saving my life."

In a separate post, KC also shared an update about her current health status following her treatment. The actress said that she hopes she can recover soon so that she can shoot again for her new movie Asian Persuasion.

"This is me. Unfiltered. I appreciate LIFE even more now... You don't know how scared I was on Wednesday morning. I couldn't handle it without the meds... It's 5 am and I am up to drink my morning dose, and will go back to sleep so I can get better... and get this movie finished!!! I have 3 more shooting days to go for Asian Persuasion and I need a negative swab test and 10 more days before I am allowed by SAG (Screen Actors Guild) to work again," she stated.

KC also reminded her followers to keep maintaining extra precautions against COVID.  

"Stay SAFE everyone. This is not like the flu. It's a whole different animal. I evaded it for 3 years!!! But just like that it got me. From an asymptomatic person who unknowingly passed it on. Try your best to live your healthiest lives. And let's ENJOY WHAT LIFE HAS TO OFFER.MAHAL KO KAYO!" she added.

KC will play as the lead actress in Asian Persuasion. It was in April when it was announced that she was replacing Toni Gonzaga as the lead star in the film due to the latter's conflicts in her schedule.

According to Variety, Asian Persuasion tells the story of a chef "who cooks up a crazy scheme to marry off his ex-wife in an attempt to avoid his substantial alimony obligations."
