Comedian Michael V or popularly known as Bitoy, gave an update on his condition after he revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19.
Bitoy shared a photo of himself seemingly wearing a hospital gown. But he assured his fans he only underwent an x-ray to check if he already acquired pneumonia after complaining that he observed he gets tired quickly.
“Sa mga concerned, nagpa-X-ray ako kahapon para masiguro kung meron akong pneumonia. Medyo mabilis kasi akong mapagod. May nakita silang pwedeng “pagmulan” ng pneumonia pero hindi naman daw kailangang magpa-ospital. Niresetahan nila ako ng antibiotics at sinabihang sa bahay na lang ituloy ang pagpapagaling. Naka-self quarantine pa rin po ako para sa safety ng lahat ng nasa paligid ko,” the multi-talented artist said.
“Gusto kong magpasalamat sa lahat ng patuloy na nagdarasal para sa kaligtasan namin ng pamilya ko. At gusto ko ring paalalahanan ang lahat na mag-ingat para wala kayong pagsisihan sa huli. Maging responsable at gawin ang lahat ng makakaya para hindi kayo mahawa o makahawa.,” he added.
Bitoy also reminded everyone always to keep the body and surroundings clean.
“Laging maging malinis sa paligid at pangangatawan. At lagi ring magsuot ng mask at PPE. Stay home everyone and stay safe,” he posted.

“I am getting better. Hindi pa rin 100% but I am getting better,” he told Nelson Canlas on “24 Oras” Wednesday.
“Kahit anong advice ng kakilala namin tina-try namin. Wala naman mawawala,” he said. “Basta be active pero ’di sobra to the point na papagurin mo sarili mo.”
Finding out that he had the disease wasn’t easy for him, said Michael V.
“Mahirap talaga. Malungkot talaga,” he said in tears.
Michae V rumors that he already passed away was a “bad joke.”
“Nakakainis, mine-message ako directly,” Michael V shared. “’Di ko alam kung sasagutin ko ng ghost emoji.”
