Hello, everyone. It’s been a while but I thought I’d update you all. I'm currently hospitalized for pneumonia and so, I was tested for Covid-19 and i’ve been waiting for the results for several days now. It’s been a challenging time for me but it cannot compare to the frontliners who have cared for me and to whom I am so grateful. My heart goes out to everyone in these trying times, especially those who risk their lives every day to care for their loved ones. I am hoping you all can join me in prayer for those who are currently sick and their loved ones, for every person struggling to cope in these tough times. And most especially, for the medical workers who are doing their best despite the hurdles. I count this time as an opportunity to be kind. To be a source of love and light. With the grace of God, i can fight this and we all fight this together. ❤️

Her talent manager Noel Ferrer has since been updating the public on her condition, and as of March 30, she has fully recovered.

Prior to this announcement, a video of Iza circulated the internet in which she was talking through an oxygen mask while being tended to by her nurse. Noel was quick to clarify that the video was not indicative of her current state and that she would be able to return home on Tuesday, March 31.

Still, her insightful message of hope rings true. In the 1:17 clip, the Bliss star reflects on a life lesson she learned throughout her hospital stay. “What little things and joyful things in life can make you complete. You don’t really need a lot of material things. You just need to be able to do the things that you are able to do. And that’s already a blessing in itself,” she says.
