Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach took to her official social media as she revealed that she tested positive for Covid-19 while spending the holidays with her family in the United Kingdom. The stunning beauty admitted contracting the virus despite being fully vaccinated and having a booster shot.

She wrote, “Kumpleto din ako ng flu & pneumonia vaccines. I eat healthy & I’m active, but I still got it. I got all the symptoms too. Fever, sore throat, body pain, runny rose, cough, & I also lost my sense of smell & taste.”



Pia is just a day away into completing her isolation with her sister Sarah who also tested positive for coronavirus. “We both tested negative already, thank God. The worst is through. I am recovering well. I am beyond grateful my parents are safe. 'Di sila nahawa sa 'kin,” she added.

Pia also urged the public to take the health crisis seriously as numbers have continued to increase after the Christmas holidays in the world. “Please take this seriously cos anyone can get it no matter how healthy you are. Being fully vaccinated doesn’t stop you from getting the virus but it helps you overcome it,” she continued.



Former Miss Universe also admitted seeing people who have broken COVID-19 protocols, as well as those who already have symptoms but refused to get tested. We wish Pia a speedy recovery.
