Sylvia Sanchez and Art Atayde draw strength from ‘praying as a family’ to fight COVID-19


Ria Atayde, the daughter of Sylvia Sanchez and Art Atayde, confirmed that her parents are slowly healing from the coronavirus (COVID-19) disease. 

In a report from Pilipino Star Ngayon, the young actress gave an update to on her parents’ current condition. 

“We have been told that our parents’ lungs are finally cleared from pneumonia. Another test has been done to see if they’re negative for COVID-19 before they can finally go home,” Ria said. 

She stressed that her parents are “not out of the woods yet” as she continues to ask for the public’s prayers.
