MANILA, Philippines — Kapuso TV host Donita Nose, real name Ogie Solano, was the latest victim of novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the entertainment industry. 

According to a "24 Oras" report, the "Wowowin" co-host is said to have expected the disease after having diarrhea, cough and fever in the past week. 

"Actually, kinakaya ko pa ‘yung one week na may fever, may ubo, pero kaninang umaga, paggising ko, may slight na akong hirap sa paghinga… Sabi ko, parang hindi na maganda,” Donita said. 

“Parang nakita ko lahat ’yung mga symptoms ng COVID is parang nandoon siya,” the singer added. 

“Mag-isa akong lumalaban dito ngayon, as in wala akong kasama, magsi-CR ako, ako lang."

Donita said that although alone at battling the virus, the comedian knows that many are praying for recovery. 

“Sabi ko nga kahit mag-isa lang ako dito, I know hindi ako nag-iisa, sa mga dasal, sa lahat. Kasi alam kong maraming nagmamahal sa akin."

Donita advised COVID-19 patients to not be ashamed to come out because it is for their own good. 

“Ang hirap kasi nang susunduin ka ng ambulansya sa bahay niyo, tapos pagtitinginan ka ng mga kapitbahay mo. Sinundo ka ng may naka-PPE. Alam na nila ‘yun. Pero huwag kayo mahiya, kasi hindi naman ito nakakahiyang sakit, e. Hindi natin gusto ‘to. Walang may gusto nito. Talagang kung tatamaan ka, tatamaan ka."

Donita also asked fellow Filipinos to not take the virus for granted because although careful not to get it, the comedian still ended up being positive for COVID-19. 

“Huwag niyo gawing biro ‘yung paglabas-labas. Kahit sa mall, kahit malalayo sila, huwag talaga. Kasi ako, alam ko ‘yung mga precautions na kailangan gawin — malayo ako sa mga tao, pero ito, tinamaan. Ang hirap. Doble ingat kayo talaga. Kung hindi niyo naman kailangan lumabas at mag-mall, huwag na talaga. Huwag na. Huwag niyo nang hintayin na maranasan niyo ‘yung nararasan dito ng mga pasyente."

Donita was the latest to suffer from the disease in local showbiz, after Michael V., Sylvia Sanchez, Iza Calzado and Christopher de Leon.
