2 Oct – Karen Ibasco recently revealed that she had actually contracted COVID-19 and is now fully recovered from the ordeal.
As reported on Inquirer, the Miss Earth 2017 shared the news on social media on 1 October, with a throwback photo of her at the beach, writing, "This exactly how I feel like now that I'm a COVID survivor!"
"I had been quiet on social media but I know I have to share my journey so others will be informed with what to do if ever they get infected. We (my whole family) did all the precautions but sad to say we still had it. Most probably we got it from deliveries," she added.
Ibasco stated that her body is still recovering even after three weeks, but assured that she is slowly getting her strength back.
She also posted a vlog about her experience with COVID-19, where she shared her own recovery tips, which include staying positive.
"Your enemy is overthinking and too much worrying. Because you have COVID-19, what happens is your body is affected by what's on your mind. And you know that the body and mind are connected. So it's always good that you think about positive thoughts," she said.
