MANILA, Philippines – Hunk actor Sam Milby was rushed to the hospital last Tuesday due to intermittent fever.
Several of his supporters got worried because earlier reports said the actor was suspected to have dengue.
Even actress Angel Locsin expressed apprehension about Milby's health through her official Twitter account.
“GET WELL SOON @SAMUELMILBY :( I HOPE IT’S NOT DENGUE,” she said.
The actor's condition, however, was clarified by Milby’s road manager Caress Caballero.
She told “Showbiz News Ngayon” on Thursday that reports claiming that Milby caught dengue are not true.
Through a text message, she said that Milby got a non-specific viral infection and that the actor is no longer in danger but needs to rest.
“He was discharged na just now. Non specific viral infection ang na-detect. ‘Di dengue. Kala namin dengue 'coz signs were parang pang dengue but hindi. No fever and normal mga tests but needs to rest. Not in his best form yet,” Caballero said.
