Sylvia Sanchez announces she and husband tested positive for COVID-19.

The Pamilya Ko actress revealed that she and Art have been rushed to the hospital a week ago due to cough, chills, and shortness of breath. The hospital tested them for COVID-19 and they recently received the test that came out positive.

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. 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.


Sylvia, then, requested the people she had in contact with to monitor themselves just in case they experience the symptoms. Aside from that, she also noted that she and Art feel better than they did before. Although slow, they hoped that prayers and following their doctor’s orders can heal them.

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. 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. 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. 🙏❤️🙏💋🙏
