Queen of all Media Kris Aquino has shared another COVID-19 scare which involves her driver.

Aquino’s full post on Instagram Nov. 7:

“November 3 we all had PCR testing because i was supposed to do a TVC shoot Nov 5… Testing was done in the morning.

“8 PM when my sons, my whole team, and i (we’re quarantining together until the 12th when this batch of commitments will finish) got an urgent message: 1 of our drivers tested positive for Covid-19.

“He doesn’t stay where we are all living now and he doesn’t drive for me, but he does take care of picking up & bringing home bimb’s homeschooling teacher, he regularly picks up members of my team from their homes, and normally when i need to bring many things & we’re a complete group, he drives our 2nd vehicle.

“we just finished this same type of scare mid August to early September- but this time, dumami ang involved. ?

“The client was informed immediately, i didn’t do my pre-shoot recording on the 4th, on the 5th we all did the antigen test and we were still all negative.

“That evening my dry cough started, accompanied by a sore throat and headache. i slept early and told myself, everyone would be in full PPE & N95 masks- kakayanin namin… i woke up still coughing, with sinus congestion, a persistent headache and fatigue. We did my hair & makeup & proceeded to the studio.

“It was there that i started to lose my voice because of the nonstop coughing & my BP had gone up to 150/100.

“Na prove sa kin kung gaano ka compassionate yung brand that i represent. Since i also produce, alam ko kung anong expense ang involved dahil hindi tinuloy yung shoot. Kaya nga pinipilit kong wag ma packup… Pero nag desisyon silang i-prioritize ang health ko at LAHAT ng mga katrabaho ko.

“3 PM kanina nag PCR test kaming lahat sa team ko, hindi ako makatulog waiting for the results… Thank You God- for now okay kami. November 10, one more test para totally CLEARED na ang Team Kris.

“i continue to pray na simpleng sinusitis, ubo, at laryngitis lamang ang meron ako… to be safe, naka isolate pa rin ako from my sons. i’m keeping myself well hydrated, naka bed rest, at ang challenge for me- total vocal rest. ??

“God bless all of us w/ the FAITH & fortitude to survive this pandemic.”
