19 Mar – Christopher de Leon recently confirmed that he has been diagnosed with the coronavirus.

The "Love Thy Woman" actor shared the news on social media on 17 March with a verse from Jeremiah 30:17 that read, "For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds, says the Lord".

He wrote, "To all my family and friends, especially in the entertainment business: Today, our doctor confirmed that I have COVID-19. I've had no recent travel history outside of the Philippines and no known contact with anyone who is positive to have the virus. However, due to the nature of my work in the entertainment business, I have interacted with many people."

"I therefore ask anyone who has come in contact me within the last week or two to observe stringent self-quarantine, observe for symptoms and follow the triage procedures published by the DOH, whether asymptomatic or not. Please cooperate with the authorities in their contact tracing efforts," he added.

De Leon also revealed that wife Sandy Andolong, daughter Mica, as well as their housemaids are also currently in self-quarantine at home.

"In this time of trial, we ask for your prayers and we continue to praise and thank the Lord for His goodness in our lives," he added.
