Comedian Michael V himself announced that he tested positive for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
According to Bitoy, he experienced flu-like symptoms the last time he tried to video blog.
“Siyempre nag-isolate na kagad ako, nag-quarantine na kagad ako. I took medicine nagpa-check up ako sa doctor online, I got better the following day,” said Bitoy.
He said he immediately isolated himself after he allegedly felt the symptoms of the disease, such as the loss of his sense of smell.
He allegedly received his COVID-19 results on the eighth day of his isolation, which turned out to be infected with the virus.
“SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA detected, so it’s positive right now. Fever na lang, yung loss of smell nare-regain ko na siya,” said Bitoy.
So far, the 50-year-old actor is in the process of fighting the disease.
“Alam kong hindi normal yung nawala yung pang-amoy ko and I was counting na may kinalaman talaga yun sa COVID but I was praying na wala but it turns out… tutuloy lang natin mga sinabi satin na kailagan gawin and we’ll get through this, we’ve been through worse sobrang namimiss ko na yung pamilya ko.”
If you recall, COVID-19 also starred some artists such as Isa Calzado and Christopher de Leon.
