Binibining Pilipinas Universe 1999 Miriam Quiambao has contracted the coronavirus after initially getting a negative result in a COVID-19 antigen test.

“Positive. But not pregnant this time. [COVID-19] naman ngayon (Now, it’s COVID-19),” he said.

Roberto noted that their house helper was the first one in their home to test positive for the coronavirus, though she eventually tested negative after isolating for seven days. Meanwhile, Quiambao’s symptoms appeared a few days after they got vaccinated, though he did not mention the symptoms that Quiambao had experienced.

“[Miriam] had symptoms a day or two after we had our Janssen jab, but we assumed it was side effect of the vaccine. Then a day or two after her symptoms appeared, I had symptoms but thought it might just be regular flu,” he narrated. “Miriam’s antigen test was negative and then we tested a day later and she was [positive].”
