Inamin ng aktor na si Tom Rodriguez na kaya s’ya pansamantalang naging inactive sa social media nitong mga nakaraang linggo ay dahil na-COVID daw s’ya at kinailangang mag-quarantine.
Ito ang isinalaysay ng Kapuso hunk sa video na in-upload n’ya kahapon, May 13, sa kanyang Instagram.
“Hey everyone. I just want to let you guys know or update you guys on what’s been going on with me,” panimula ng Filipino-American actor sa kanyang video.
“I know I took a bit of hiatus there. None of your heard from me for a while. That was because I was taking some time off and trying to recover because I had tested positive for COVID.”
Nahawa daw s’ya sa virus habang nagshu-shoot ng pelikula out of town at tumagal din daw ng mahigit isang buwan ang kanyang pagpapagaling.
“I was quarantine for, let’s say, a little over four weeks,” lahad ni Tom. “It took awhile since I was clinically recovered. I contracted the virus when I was shooting for a movie, unfortunately, out of town.”
Thankful daw s’ya na sinunod n’ya ang payo ng fiancee n’yang si Carla Abellana na magpa-test. Dahil doon, nang mag-positive s’ya sa result, hindi na sila nagkita at hindi n’ya ito nahawaan.
“And although I tested negative for the antigen swab test, Carla encouraged me to take a PCR test on my way home,” k’wento pa ng 33-year-old actor sa video.
“Buti na lang I took her advice and hindi muna kami nagkita nu’n. So there was no chance that I infected her when I did test positive. And ‘yon, I’ve been clinically recovered, let say, mga a little over a week.”
Ipinagpapasalamat din ni Tom na mild lang ang mga naranasan n’yang symptoms.
“It was very manageable,” aniya. “I didn’t have fevers. I didn’t have coughs and phlegm and tightness in my chest.
“Fortunately, I didn’t have any loss of sense of smell or taste so I was able to eat and boost my immune system that way.”
“It’s great to be feeling better and back to work… Anyway, I took my antigen test kanina before I was admitted here in the quarantine hotel.
Dagdag pa ni Tom, “I’ll be taking the PCR test in the next few days. And when I’m cleared with that I’m gonna be heading to our final lock-in location. So, this is a temporary halfway home before I really do start work. So I can’t wait. I can’t wait to be back to work.”
Ipinakita rin ng aktor sa video na dala-dala n’ya ang kanyang mga gadgets sa kanyang hotel room dahil nag-aaral daw s’ya kung paano gumawa ng mga video games.
We’re happy for you, Tom!
