MANILA -- After he initially tested positive for the novel coronavirus when he took the first rapid test in "ASAP," singer-composer Ogie Alcasid announced on Friday that results from his swab tests showed that he is negative.

This is why, Alcasid explained in a Facebook post, why he was inactive in social media for the past few days as he was in isolation.

After the first rapid test in "ASAP," Alcasid said he took another test which came out negative. A third test, however, showed that he is positive for the coronavirus.

Following the protocol, Alcasid, who was asyumptomatic, has to take swab tests for confirmation last Monday and finally got the good news on Friday, after four days.

Here is Alcasid's post:


"Dami kong kwento sa isolation and communion with God. Grabe... kwento ko soon," he said. "Ingat po ang lahat."
