Kakai Bautista is now in recovery from the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) after testing positive 14 days ago.
The comedienne shared the good news on her Instagram today, September 11. In the post, Kakai recalled her experience upon learning that she had contracted the virus.
"Today, on my 14th day, I graduated from COVID University," Kakai wrote in the caption.
"Yes, I tested positive for COVID-19 asymptomatic, and got another test today and the result was negative."
"I am making it public so that I may be able to share my journey to all of you and raise more awareness. Guys, COVID is not a joke. Oo, sakit s'ya, virus s'ya. Pero mas parang ikakamatay mo ang fear and anxiety 'pag nagkaroon ka," she continued.
"But when I learned that I (had) it, dalawang bagay lang ang sinabi ko kay Lord. 'Lord, hindi pa ako pwedeng mamatay kasi mababawasan ng maganda ang mundo' and 'Lord, I surrender everything to you.' And I was OK. Nagpaka-normal ako dahil alam kong mas magkakasakit ako kapag hindi ako umayos sa isip at sa gawa," she said.
Kakai ended her post with words of encouragement, "Akap and prayers sa lahat ng may pinagdaanan sa walanghiyang virus na ito. Matatapos din ito, guys. Kapit lang tayo sa pag-asa at faith. Isa lang ang dapat positive -- mindset."
Kakai's last big screen outing was in the 2019 worldwide blockbuster hit "Hello, Love, Goodbye."
