23 Sep – Kim Chiu recently admitted that she is very scared of contracting COVID-19 due to the fact that she has asthma.
As reported on GMA News, the actress who opened up about her health issues recently, stated that she was afraid of what the coronavirus could do to her as she has a very weak lung.
"They said that the lungs were the first to be affected by the virus. To be honest, I have pushed myself to work out every day so that I could get my lungs stronger. I do lots of workouts and different types of exercises to make me stronger," she said.
It is noted that Chiu even ran marathons in the past, but was unable to do so now due to the situation. Instead, she decided to purchase fitness equipment for her own use at home.
"Now I have a stationary bike, a treadmill, and I also go swimming so that I can do physical activities here indoors. Of course, the distance is very limited compared to when I was running a marathon," she said.
In addition to her workouts, Chiu even takes supplements in the form of Vitamin C and Zinc to enhance her immune system.
"It helps me a lot because it boosts my mental sharpness and physical energy. It also relieves stress," she added.
