Love Thy Woman lead actor Christopher de Leon announced through his Facebook account that his doctor confirmed that he has been infected by the coronavirus. The actor has become the first Filipino celebrity with no recent travel history who tested positive for COVID-19.
“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.”
Christopher would like to ask everyone who had direct contact with him within the last one to two weeks to observe self-quarantine and strictly follow the precautionary measures provided by the Department of Health.
“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. My wife Sandy, daughter Mica & our kasambahay are 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.”
Christopher affirmed that he’s now under self-quarantine with his wife Sandy, daughter Mica, and house helpers.
Christopher de Leon is the first Pinoy celebrity to be diagnosed with the coronavirus. Idris Elba announced earlier today, March 17, that he had also tested positive. Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson announced they tested positive last week.
