Maureen Wroblewitz opened up on her struggles dealing with COVID-19 as she shares some advice to the public to avoid getting infected themselves.
The model revealed that it “has been a very scary experience” and that it “has most definitely taken a toll on [her] mental health,” as seen on her Instagram post on Nov. 20.
“Hello everyone, some people know that I’ve been sick for the past few days and I actually wanted to keep this information private but I feel the need to spread awareness about such an important topic,” Wroblewitz said. “I was tested positive for [COVID-19] and I’ve been in home quarantine for [two] weeks.”

“I am much better now and I am grateful to be alive. This experience has taught me a few things,” Wroblewitz disclosed. “That I should never let my guard down at a time like this, to trust my gut instincts and also that the only person you can really trust is yourself.”
“You can’t rely on other people to keep you safe. Sometimes not even the people closest to you, friends that you think will always have your back,” the model added.
Wroblewitz also emphasized that one must protect oneself because “there are people out there who don’t care if you get infected.”
“Please be vigilant as you can catch the virus so easily. Make sure to always wear a mask & face shield wherever you go (if you see people who aren’t wearing them properly, kindly advise them to do so. Nose and mouth both need to be covered by the mask and the face shield shouldn’t sit on top of the head either… be extra careful because you never know how long someone’s been wearing their mask already,” she stressed.
“[Practice] social distancing and boost your immune system with lots of Vitamin C, B, and D. If there is no reason to go out, stay home!” Wroblewitz added.
The model also shared that she is “very lucky to have only had mild symptoms,” but noted that other people are not as fortunate.
“Think about your parents or grandparents who are at a higher risk of getting severe symptoms. Not everyone you see outside has a strong immune system and may even have other medical conditions,” Wroblewitz said.
“Please be responsible when you go out and protect yourself first in order to protect others!” she added. “Stay safe and healthy everyone.” JB
