Broadcaster Arnold Clavio revealed that he has tested positive for COVID-19, despite taking extra precautionary measures against the virus.

Clavio shared that he contracted the virus, while showing a video of him taking his antigen tests, as seen on his Instagram page yesterday, Jan. 9.


“After almost two years, this is my first time to be infected by [COVID-19] virus,” he said. “It’s real and serious.”


He recalled being exposed to a COVID positive individual last Thursday, Jan. 6, prompting him to take an antigen test, which then came out negative. After his “close contact” tested negative for the virus, the anchor then opted to take another test yesterday, which unfortunately gave out a positive result.

Clavio urged the public to be careful, noting how he still caught the virus despite practicing the health protocols. He also reminded them to have a “positive thought” amid the pandemic.

“And the only way to fight this virus is a positive thought… Sa kabila ng pag-iingat ko (Despite being careful), wearing of mask, hand washing, social distancing, vitamins, immune booster, lots of vitamin D, tinamaan pa rin ako (I still caught the virus) and I don’t know how… So be careful everyone,” he said.

Meanwhile, Clavio thanked those who offered their prayers for him in a separate post also yesterday, while also sending out his well wishes to those who are going through the same situation.

“Thank you for all your prayers. Di ko ito malalagpasan, kung wala kayong lahat. At promise, magpapalakas ako para sa inyo,” he said.


(I would not get through this if it wasn’t for all of you. And promise, I will make myself stronger for all of you.)
