Actress Iza Calzado shared in Instagram that she has been hospitalized for pneumonia and has also been tested for COVID-19. She is currently waiting for her test results. "Hello, everyone. It’s been a while but I thought I’d update you all. I'm currently hospitalized for pneumonia and so, I was tested for COVID-19 and I’ve been waiting for the results for several days now," she wrote.
"It’s been a challenging time for me but it cannot compare to the frontliners who have cared for me and to whom I am so grateful. My heart goes out to everyone in these trying times, especially those who risk their lives every day to care for their loved ones," she added.
Iza also asked for prayers: "I am hoping you all can join me in prayer for those who are currently sick and their loved ones, for every person struggling to cope in these tough times. And most especially, for the medical workers who are doing their best despite the hurdles.
I count this time as an opportunity to be kind. To be a source of love and light. With the grace of God, I can fight this and we all fight this together."
We wish you a speedy recovery, Iza!
