Dear Family and Friends. Iza Calzado received her results yesterday that she tested positive for CoVid. She is recovering well as she was aggressively treated for pneumonia and the virus. She can actually breath now without any oxygen assistance. She will be tested again to see if she is already negative. Her husband Ben and others who interacted with her have not shown any symptoms. She doesn’t know where she contracted the virus from, but it’s best for all of us to take seriously the advice of doctors and health authorities on proper hygiene, physical distancing, quarantine and social responsibility. Thank you to the frontliners who continue to risk their lives to attend to our kababayans like Iza. Let us continue to pray for the healing of Iza and our brothers and sisters who are most affected by this pandemic. God bless us all! #PrayingForIza #LabanIza
