Kris Aquino is thankful that her son Bimby is not showing symptoms of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
The actress-host took to Instagram to share an update on the health of her youngest son’s condition.
“I praise God, the pediatrician, Dr. Delos Reyes, checked Bimb again — upper respiratory infection and bronchial asthma. No pneumonia, no fever, pero matamlay kasi maraming gamot na iniinom,” she wrote.
Kris previously said that she decided to isolate herself and sons Josh and Bimby, after the latter fell sick due to a bad cough and pneumonia, at an unidentified lady friend’s house. Prior to that, she stayed at a resort provided by her good friend and TV host Willie Revillame just as the Luzon-wide lockdown started. “Nag magandang loob na si Willie, nakakahiya kung may mahawa pa sa masamang ubo and pneumonia ni Bimb,” she explained then her decision to move out of Willie’s private property.
She and her family are now staying at an unnamed Puerto Galera resort and she took the time to express her gratitude to the people who assisted them.
“Tinutulungan ako ni Check & Randy (from Willie), ni ate Loida & her family, ni nurse Mona, and the very kindhearted Mayor of Puerto Galera, Mayor Rocky Ilagan,” she said.
She continued: “Sobrang mabait and welcoming ng mga taga Puerto Galera — sa lockdown na ito they have made us feel secure, welcomed and cared for.”
“Maraming salamat sa staff ng resort na tinutuluyan namin (I’ll name the place and share pics pag okay na). And thank you sa mga taga Mercury na tumutulong talaga para mahanap ang maintenance na gamot ko.”
Kris also offered prayers for the COVID-19 frontliners.
“God bless you all. I pray for all our healthcare workers. Many have become my close friends & I salute their heroic efforts,” she said.
As a thank you for Puerto Galera’s warm welcome, Kris donated 12 sacks of rice which the town’s chief executive said will be given to the tricycle drivers.
