Veteran actress Carmi Martin recently revealed that she contracted the coronavirus and is now free of the disease.
In a Facebook post, she shared that she took a swab test last September 13. The test was required since she was going to shoot for a digital series under ABS-CBN’s film production company Star Cinema. The following day, she received her result that showed she was positive for COVID-19.
“I really felt bad because I have no symptoms except for my BP that shoot up, and also for not (being) able to do the project since I was so prepared and really was so excited to do it,” she said.
Despite falling ill, Carmi said her two-week quarantine became a “honeymoon with God.”
“I spent each day with prayers and praying for others, singing beautiful songs for our Lord and listening to excellent preachings each day,” she wrote.
The 57-year-old said having a positive attitude, exercising and eating healthy food helped her recover well from COVID-19.
She then thanked those who helped her during this difficult time and the ABS-CBN medical team for taking care of her.
“Panginoon Diyos, salamat sa pagkakataon na mas lalo akong manalig sa iyo at maging blessing sa ibang tao na may mga pinagdadaanan sa panahon ng Covid.
“My two-week quarantine was so precious because spending time with GOD will always be the BEST! PRAISE GOD for I am now Covid-free,” Carmi wrote.
