Miss Earth 2011 Olga Alava of Ecuador gave everyone an update on how she coped with the symptoms of #COVID19:
“Day 16 since the first symptom. And there are no more symptoms! I no longer drown and I have recovered my taste and smell, I feel good, THANK YOU! I thank God and ask for those who suffer from symptoms that can be treated in their homes and can take action on time. THANK YOU to all who sent their messages, giving advice and keeping me company virtually. I value it very much. Never lose faith that we can cope with this virus, let’s not let our guard down, support as we can and keep taking care of ourselves.”
Stay safe, Olga❣️
As if it’s not enough that she was getting lukewarm media mileage from the time she was crowned, it’s sad that Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi continues to experience hurdles in her reign, what with the #COVID19 pandemic spoiling whatever foreign travels she may have been invited to during this period. It’s good that she was able to make the trip to Indonesia, appeared during Puteri Indonesia 2020 and filmed her TVC for You.C1000. Below is a message she recorded for everyone amidst all that is happening right now.
A good friend of mine (who’s also into pageantry and whose name I am keeping in confidence for now) asked me this question. For a long while after, I got stumped for a definitive reply:
“…alam mo, given how things are, cancelling the entire 2020 pageant season isn’t a bad idea. the olympics are being moved. what’s your thought? kasi even if they come up with the cure, the economic and social aftermath still haven’t been felt…”
Now I am asking your take on this, dear readers. As far as I’m concerned, I believe it is inevitable. The cancellation, that is.
