“She underwent a rapid antigen test Saturday morning and tested positive. She took an RT-PCR (reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction) test that confirmed she had COVID-19. She was immediately hospitalized,” Mangilimutan said.

Mangilimutan urged people to be vaccinated to protect themselves from severe COVID-19 that could lead to death.

“COVID is real. Get vaccinated because no amount of money can save you, if you are hit by the virus,” she said.
