Actress Sylvia Sanchez and husband Art Atayde tested positive for COVID-19.
Sylvia took to Instagram earlier today, March 31, to relay the unfortunate news to her celebrity friends and online followers.
The Kapamilya actress revealed in her post that she and her husband were immediately brought to Cardinal Santos hospital after they manifested symptoms of the said virus.
“Hi everyone❤️ On March 24, my husband and I were brought to Cardinal Santos as I was having chills and he had cough and shortness of breath.” she wrote on her IG post.
“We were made to take the covid-19 swab test and since then, Art and I have self-isolated. A week later, we finally received the results and we both came out positive for COVID19.”
The actress also reached out to those people who were exposed to them and asked them to monitor themselves if they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
“We would like to request those whom we saw prior to the community quarantine to monitor for symptoms of shortness of breath, cough, fever, LBM and sore throat.”
Sylvia then assured the public that they are following their doctor’s orders and they are slowly getting better.
“Art and I are getting better each day. Although this is slower than our usual recovery, we know that with prayers and strict compliance with our doctor’s orders, we will get there. Until then, we will keep you updated on how this progresses.”
At the end of her post, she reminded everyone to stay at home and drink their much-needed vitamin C to protect themselves from the virus.
“Stay safe, healthy and take your 1000mg of vitamin C and 20mg of zinc daily! Most importantly, stay home to help prevent the spread of the virus.”
Sylvia’s showbiz friends and colleagues are sending the couple an outpouring of get-well-soon messages and healing prayers.
