Tinamaan ng COVID-19 ang model na si Maureen Wroblewitz.
Ikinuwento niya ito sa pamamagitan ng isang Instagram post kagabi, November 21.
Naka-tag sa kanyang post ang boyfriend na si JK Labajo at manager na si Chinie Go.
Noong una ay gusto sanang gawing pribado ni Maureen ang kanyang pinagdaanan, subalit mas maigi raw kung ibabahagi niya ang karanasan.
Kuwento ni Maureen, “very scary experience” daw ang pagkakaroon niya ng virus at nakaapekto ito sa kanyang mental health.
Sa ngayos, maayos na raw ang kanyang kalagayan.
Saad niya, “Hello everyone, some people know that I’ve been sick for the past few days and I actually wanted to keep this information private but I feel the need to spread awareness about such an important topic.
“I was tested positive for Covid-19 and I’ve been in home quarantine for 2 weeks. It has been a very scary experience and it has most definitely taken a toll on my mental health. I am much better now and I am grateful to be alive.”
Marami raw natutunan si Maureen sa pangyayaring ito.
Isa na rito ang matinding pagprotekta sa sarili dahil mayroon daw mga taong walang pakialam kahit ma-infect ka ng virus.
Tila may hugot rin si Maureen tungkol sa mga kaibigan at taong malapit sa kanya.
Aniya, “I should never let my guard down at a time like this, to trust my gut instincts and also that the only person you can really trust is yourself. You can’t rely on other people to keep you safe.
“Sometimes not even the people closest to you, friends that you think will always have your back. You really have to protect yourself because there are people out there who don‘t care if you get infected.”
Kailangan din daw talagang maging vigilant at sundin ang safety protocols dahil madaling makuha ang virus.
“Please be vigilant as you can catch the virus so easily. Make sure to always wear a mask & face shield wherever you go (if you see people who aren’t wearing them properly, kindly advise them to do so.
“Nose and mouth both need to be covered by the mask and the face shield shouldn’t sit on top of the head either [inverted smiley emoji] be extra careful because you never know how long someone’s been wearing their mask already) practice social distancing and boost your immune system with lots of Vitamin C, B, and D. If there is no reason to go out, stay home!”
Swerte rin daw si Maureen dahil mild lang ang naging sintomas niya, subalit dapat daw isipin din ng mga tao ang mga kasama nila sa bahay na high risk sa virus.
Pagpapatuloy ni Maureen, “I am very lucky to have only had mild symptoms but there are enough people out there who aren’t as fortunate. Think about your parents or grandparents who are at a higher risk of getting severe symptoms.
“Not everyone you see outside has a strong immune system and may even have other medical conditions. Please be responsible when you go out and protect yourself first in order to protect others! Stay safe and healthy everyone [red heart emoji].”
