CNN Philippines — Actress Iza Calzado has COVID-19, her manager announced on Saturday.
"She is recovering well as she was aggressively treated for pneumonia and the virus. She can actually breathe now without any oxygen assistance,” Noel Ferrer said in an online statement.
Ferrer said Calzado will take the test for the coronavirus disease again to check if it will now show a negative result.
He added that Calzado’s husband Ben Wintle and other acquaintances she has recently met with, have not shown any COVID-19 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,” said Ferrer.
This development comes three days after the actress shared that she tested for the disease and was confined in the hospital due to pneumonia. She thanked the health workers who attended to her.
