Producer Noel Ferrer made the announcement on Facebook today, March 28. He wrote, "Iza Calzado received her results yesterday that she tested positive for COVID. She is recovering well as she was aggressively treated for pneumonia and the virus. She can actually breath now without any oxygen assistance."

Iza's husband Ben Wintle has not shown any symptoms of the coronavirus. The same goes for those who interacted with the actress prior to her diagnosis.

"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," Noel continued.

This confirmation comes a few days after Iza revealed in an Instagram post last March 25 that she had been hospitalized due to pneumonia.



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. 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. 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. ❤️
