Alicia fully recovered after spending a month battling COVID-19.

“I just want to thank my colleagues,” Alicia shared. “I’ve got so much love for them. They are such a fantastic team. I haven’t been able to see my daughters for a month so [I] can’t wait to get home.”

The Department of Foreign Affairs recorded a total of 1,395 Filipinos abroad infected with COVID-19 as of April 27. There have been 380 recoveries and 186 fatalities.
