Heart Evangelista has canceled plans to attend upcoming fashion week events amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

The actress made the decision as early as January “for safety reasons,” she said in her Twitter post yesterday, March 9.


“That’s why I was absent during fashion week,” Evangelista added, but did not specify which event she was referring to.

Evangelista revealed her choice to cancel her trips following a report that Vietnamese heiress Nga Nguyen tested positive for COVID-19 after attending fashion week shows in Europe.

The 27-year-old heiress attended events including fashion shows by Saint Laurent in Paris and Gucci in Milan, as per South China Morning Post on March 8. Her sister, who joined her on the trip, also tested positive for the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

Prior to canceling her trips, Evangelista attended some fashion shows in Paris last January.

Meanwhile, President Duterte has placed the Philippines under a state of public health emergency yesterday, after the confirmed coronavirus cases in the country soared to 24. Ryan Arcadio /ra
