Sylvia Sanchez, husband test positive for COVID-19
MANILA, Philippines — Sylvia Sanchez and her husband Art Atayde have tested positive for COVID-19, the actress confirmed Tuesday.
Sanchez said on Instagram she and Atayde went to a hospital in San Juan City on March 24 after she experienced chills and he had shortness of breath. The results of their swab tests came a week later.
“Art and I are getting better each day,” she assured. “Although this is slower than our usual recovery, we know that with prayers and strict compliance with our doctor’s orders, we will get there.”
“We would like to request those whom we saw prior to the community quarantine to monitor for symptoms of shortness of breath, cough, fever, LBM and sore throat,” she said.
Sanchez and Atayde are parents to actors Arjo Atayde and Ria Atayde.
