The actress shared on her latest uploaded vlog on how their family acquire the virus from one of the family member who step out of their house to buy food causing the actress to cancel her supposed upcoming wedding, personal plans and her noontime show to another network.
“Maraming nagtatanong sa akin kung bakit di pa ko lumalabas sa Lunch Out Loud. Hindi po ako nagpapakita sa show kasi nagka-COVID po ako and thank God ako ay naka-survive. Actually the whole family,” Gonzaga shared. “I’ve been sharing all the highs of my life. I shared with you our Christmas together, our new year, my engagement. But it is also nice if I could share with you the lows.”
“Gusto ko ikasal ngayon kasama ‘yung family, konting friends pero dahil sa walang kakwenta-kwentang bagay, nakuha namin COVID,” she narrated. Alex Gonzaga’s described her parents, Pinty and Bonoy Gonzaga, were all asymptomatic while she, and Fiancee Mikeé Morada, and her assistant Sofie experienced mild symptoms such as sore throat, loss of taste, feeling weak, and clogged nose. None of them needed hospitalization.
Actress Alex Gonzaga said she decided to reveal her battle with the disease in the hopes that her viewers would take the virus seriously.“It made me realize that during this pandemic, we should start thinking about other people. It is not about you. It is about the people around you. Para mas maiwasan nating makahawa (This is so we could avoid infecting others),” Gonzaga said.
