IZA CALZADO Confirmed Positive For COVID-19 But Is Now Recovering Well
After getting hospitalized a few days ago due to pneumonia, Iza Calzado has now been confirmed to be positive for COVID-19.
Her manager Noel Ferrer disseminated the sad news to the public. In spite of this alarming situation, he said that the actress is recovering well and can actually breathe now without any oxygen assistance.
"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 breathe now without any oxygen assistance. She will be tested again to see if she is already negative," he wrote on his personal Facebook account.
Thankfully, the case seems to be isolated as he continued, "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."
Iza is the second showbiz personality to be confirmed COVID-19 positive, after veteran actor Christopher de Leon. He has since been discharged from the hospital. Another Filipino actor, Menggie Cobarrubias, passed away because of pneumonia recently, after being tested for COVID-19. His test result is yet to be announced.
