The actress shared the news in an Instagram post today, March 25, with a photo of her confined in the hospital.
“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 in the caption.
She continued, “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.”
The actress then asked everyone to join her in a prayer for those who are struggling during the pandemic.
“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. ❤️” she added.
Iza will star in the upcoming teleserye “Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin” alongside Jodi Sta. Maria and Sam Milby.
