On April 7, Rhian Ramos revealed that she had tested positive for COVID-19, along with her road manager Rach Librado. On Instagram, the 30-year-old actress shared that, yes, they are already out of the woods and cleared of the virus, but also documented their quarantine together in a short video montage.
Showing clips of her positive test result, their medications, and various activities to keep them physically and mentally healthy, Rhian detailed her joint battle with Rach and how they found strength in each other: "It started with a fever. We isolated for the first few days but found out we were both positive. Started feeling better [on] day four to six. Together we focused on getting better and making each other laugh. Some days we'd feel better, some days we'd feel worse. But we stayed motivated and focused on our health and still found things to laugh about, 'cause despite the scary days at least we had each other."
On her Instagram caption, Rhian wrote how thankful she feels to overcome the virus and shared words of encouragement to those who are going through similar circumstances: "The past few weeks have been harrowing at times, but I'm not really here to scare anyone, just sharing how grateful I am for life, health, love, and friendship. Thank you to everyone who sent us encouragement and help through this experience. It meant the world to us and I'll always remember how much you've blessed us.
"Can I just say though. The light at the end of the tunnel is wonderful. If you or someone you know is still going through the COVID battle, stay motivated, my friend. Keep your morale up. When you see your first negative result, you'll be overcome with relief and that feeling you've been dreaming of, where for five minutes there's finally no fear. God bless our countrymen and God bless our health workers. Praying for you all out there. Stay safe."
