MICHAEL V is well on his way to full recovery while self quarantined in their own home. This he shared in an interview on “24 Oras”. He is slowly recovering his sense of smell which he lost as one of the side effects of being infected by the corona virus. 

“Hindi pa 100 percent pero at least, bumabalik na ang pang-amoy ko. I can smell what is cooking sa aming kitchen pero kapag dinala na sa room ko, di ko na maamoy,” he shares.

He enjoins everyone to be very careful. “Hindi po joke ang nararanasan ng isang taong nai-infect ng Covid 19 kaya maging maingat at responsable tayong lahat. Walang pinipili ang virus kaya sundin po natin lahat ng protocols like wearing a face mask, social distancing, washing our hands constantly, for our own good. Also, avoid being stressed out. Kasi kapag stressed ka, bumababa ang resistance ng katawan mo at mas madali kang mai-infect ng virus. And once you feel the symptoms, magpa-test na kayo agad kasi importante ang early detection, para magamot din kayo agad at ma-quarantine nang hindi kayo makapanghawa pa sa ibang tao.”

After the completion of his quarantine and full recovery, he intends to donate his own blood plasma to help other patients.  “Convalescent plasma infusion is important to help other patients and I think it’s a responsible thing to do. Makakatulong rin siguro ito sa research and science to find yung antidote or lunas sa sakit na ito.”

Michael V is looking forward to his complete recovery so he can go back to taping fresh new episodes for his two regular GMA shows, “Bubble Gang” and “Pepito Manaloto”.
