24 Mar – Maggie Wilson had to cut her trip to Egypt short following the announcement that the Philippines was imposing a community quarantine of Metro Manila.

As reported on GMA News, the actress recently shared a photo of her with the backdrop of the Great Sphinx of Giza, and wrote, "I just wanted to share the only and most decent photos I took of our 2-day trip in Cairo. It was supposed to be a 10-day birthday trip around Egypt but as soon as we got word that Manila was going on lockdown, we cut our trip short so we could come home and be with our family."

"We made the most of our trip despite the weather. As you can see, it was raining when we visited the pyramids. It rained the entire two days we were there. The roads were heavily flooded and there was a power and water outage in the entire city. BUT, we had an amazing time because my Tita Helly and Uncle Sherif took such good care of us," she added.

It was a good decision to leave, as Wilson stated that Egypt went into total lockdown due to the virus only two days after they left.

"I hope that you are all safe, at home, and enjoying time with your loved ones. So let's all cooperate, practice social distancing and pray that this whole thing blows over soon. Love you guys! Stay safe and well," she added.
