Iza Calzado posted on her Instagram account an update on her condition after battling with Coronavirus.

In her latest IG post, she looks okay now and is back to blooming.

She thanked her followers, work colleagues, her family and friends, and the Asian Hospital and Medical Center medical staff on Monday, April 6, almost a week after she was discharged from the hospital after testing positive for the novel coronavirus.

Iza was hospitalized because of pneumonia. She was already in the hospital when she tested positive for the coronavirus. In her post, she said she also had an Acinetobacter Baumannii infection. COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, weakens a patient’s immune system, leaving them vulnerable to other infections and complications.

Hello Everyone! It’s a brand new week and today I am grateful for my life. 🙏🏽 Most of you know what happened to me. Before I talk about it, I would like to address something. When I started getting sick, I made a comment on an IG post that was totally misconstrued. I understand how and why that happened and I am sorry if anyone was offended and felt bad about it. Please know that I would never intentionally say anything to hurt others nor celebrate anyone else’s suffering. I am a hopeful person and always try see the silver lining in every dark cloud. I am sad that you missed my heart but I also understand your sentiments. After 2 weeks of battling Covid 19, pneumonia and a nasty bacteria called Acinetobacter Baumannii, I am alive and for that I am truly grateful. I know that so many of you sent your love and support and I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of you. Please know that even if I didn’t get to read all the messages, I felt the love and good energy and that you helped me pull through one of the darkest moments of my life. Everything by God’s Grace, of course, but your prayers did so much for me. I hope in some way, I can pay it forward. I wish to thank all the frontliners especially my doctors and nurses in Asian Hospital for going above and beyond to make sure I live, breathe and have another shot at life. To Dr. Jorge Garcia, Kuya Joel and the family, much love and respect. Thank you. Thank you for the support from my ABSCBN family who always checked up on me and made sure that I was fine until the finish line. Salamat, Kapamilya! My deepest gratitude to my friends and family who prayed HARD and really made me feel their love and care for me especially my number 1 nurse, my husband, Ben. I could never have done this without you, my Love. We did it, by God’s Grace, we made it! Today, I encourage you to take a moment to thank God for your breath, thank Him for everything and everyone in your life and let us continue to pray for those who are suffering and for those who are trying their best to help those in need. Together, we can overcome all of this. Mabuhay! ❤️

A post shared by Iza Calzado Wintle (@missizacalzado) on

The actress opened her post apologizing for a statement she said: “was completely misconstrued.”

The actress was criticised online for a comment she made on a post by Lea Salonga before announcing that she had been hospitalized.

Lea shared another viral post about the possibility of coronavirus “is here to help us,” as it rattled on the consequences of lockdowns and quarantines worldwide – clearer skies because mass transportation has been reduced or shut down completely, people being forced to work from home, among others. “What is this virus is an ally in our evolution?”

Iza then commented: “I agree with this and have been thinking about how the Covid situation is actually the Universe’s way of making the world a better place moving forward. Praying for the best.”

Iza also encouraged her followers to continue praying as the world continues to battle the pandemic.

Iza is one of more than 3,000 confirmed cases of COVID 17 in the Philippines. Since March 17, the entire Luzon has been on lockdown with various provinces and cities around the Philippines beginning their own community quarantines as cases of the virus and the disease it caused continues to be detected around the country.
