Ruffa Gutierrez Shares What It’s Like To Get Nasal Swab For Detecting COVID-19
RUFFA GUTIERREZ- Filipina actress Ruffa Gutierrez shared what it’s like to get a nasal swab for detecting coronavirus.
Actress and beauty queen Ruffa Gutierrez is the only daughter of actor Eddie Gutierrez and Annabelle Rama. She has 2 daughters with her ex-husband Yilmaz Bektas – Lorin Gutierrez and Venice Gutierrez. Yilmaz and Ruffa’s legal separation happened in 2012.
The 46-year-old celebrity is among the people who are working amid the COVID-19 pandemic and of course they followed proper precautions.
In a previous article, Ruffa Gutierrez reportedly rejected her kissing scene with actor Bobby Andrews. She explained that those scenes are still not safe due to the COVID-19 threat. She and Andrews star in the new Kapatid tv series titled “Stay-In Love.”
In an interview with Inquirer, the prominent actress said taking a swab test for coronavirus is something that one will never get uses to. She said it because she has experienced it several times since March. She has already been part of 3 lock-in taping, the “Love Thy Woman” and “The House Arrest of Us,” and “Stay In Love.”
“My nose is so kawawa! My first swab test was when we had everyone in our house tested. My mom said we had to do it, even though I never went out prior to the lockdown. She said it was to make sure everyone is OK,” she said.
The COVID-19 swab test requires inserting a 6” long swab into the cavity of a person’s nose and mouth for 15 seconds. According to the report, Ruffa Gutierrez said she got COVID-19 swab test every time she went into the set and upon exit.
“It’s kind of painful. While I’ve encountered health workers who have already mastered doing it, there were also those who seemed to be taking their sweet time with the swab in there… I’m just thankful that it’s always negative when I get the results. What happens these days is that when you test positive, you’re automatically taken out of a project.”
Ruffa Gutierrez further said that “even if it’s an inconvenience, it’s needed talaga. You have to make sure that everyone is healthy and safe. Even though you wear masks during rehearsals, you will still need to take them off during takes.”
“Actually, I still have to get used to all the protocols that we have on the set, especially the fact that we all have to bring your own stuff. It’s much more work because you have very limited people with you, but it’s better because you know everyone is safe.”
