A Filipina domestic helper in Switzerland confessed about her experience as a Novel Coronavirus (COVID19) positive.

Mards Sweetie Manalo shared on her social media account a video of a Filipina who claims to be a COVID-19 positive.

She identifies herself as Elisa Magsino, an OFW in Switzerland and COVID-19 positive. She is currently detained at Samidan Hospital, Switzerland.

According to her, she started to have a fever last Tuesday, March 3 and headache as well as inflammation in the throat. She decided to drink medicine without the prescription of the doctor hoping that the symptoms will ease.

Though her fever subsides after she drank the medicine, her employer got worried about her and decided to send her to a private clinic in their area. Her employer personally paid for her medical needs so she can have a diagnosis as soon as possible.

After several tests, she turns out to be a coronavirus positive. Before knowing the results, her employer allowed her to rest inside her room. She started to drink lemon-infused water with honey that lessens her symptoms.

She is puzzled as to where she got the virus because she seldom goes out of their house. It is her employer that usually goes outside and has guests now and then.

She sent advice to all Filipinos to always wash hands as wearing masks cannot guarantee you being safe from coronavirus.
