Michael V recovers from COVID-19, honors frontliners with ‘fan art’


Kapuso star Michael V said he has finished his quarantine and has recovered from COVID-19 after testing positive last month.

“Sa ngayon, tapos na ‘yung quarantine ko at masasabi kong okay na. Naka-recover na ako,” he revealed in his most recent vlog on YouTube. 

Fondly known as Bitoy, the veteran comedian shared that the most obvious changes he felt in his body when he got infected with COVID-19 were the recurring fever, loss of smell and taste, and fatigue.

The actor-comedian also thanked fans who offered prayers for his fast recovery, as well as those who sent him fan arts during his COVID-19 fight.

Bitoy, who’s usually the recipient of fan art, also made his own fan art to pay tribute to all the frontliners and healthcare workers in the country’s battle against the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“I made sure na mailagay lahat ng detalye na tumatak sa isip ko. ‘Yung tagaktak ng pawis nila, paghubad ng PPE, ‘yung pangungulubot ng mga kamay dahil sa ilang patong na gloves. Yung marka na iniiwan ng maghapon na pag susuot ng face mask,” he said.

Bitoy then called on the public to help and support frontliners in fighting COVID-19.

“Kahit po mga superheroes, at one point, natatalo sa mga kalaban. Ang mga medical frontliners po natin ay hindi superheroes. Wala po silang superpowers. Kaya kung puwede lang po sana huwag natin silang hayaang matalo. Tulungan po natin sila,” he said.
