Dennis Trillo had a rather unique way of giving a health update as he composed a song to reveal that he and his actress wife Jennylyn Mercado tested positive for COVID-19.

The actor sang his composition entitled “Gamutin na natin ‘to!” while playing the guitar, as seen on his Instagram page on Monday, Dec. 11.


“Oh, ito na nga/ Tinamaan din ako/ Akala ko’y hindi na tatablan nito/ Ba’t nag-positive ako?/ Gamutin na natin ito/ May bago na ngang uso/ Pati na ang misis ko/ May COVID kaming tatlo,” he sings.


Trillo disclosed that three from their family contracted the virus, but it was not immediately clear if he was referring to their one-year-old daughter Dylan.

“COVID is back, guys!” he added in the comments section.

The family then received well-wishes from their loved ones, fellow celebrities as well as fans who commended Trillo for “making a positive out of a negative situation.”
