MANILA, Philippines — Former beauty queen Miriam Quiambao tested positive for COVID-19. 

In her husband’s Instagram account, Ardy Roberto shared a photo of Miriam holding an antigen test showing that she’s positive for the dreaded virus. 

“Positive. But not pregnant this time. Covid naman ngayon,” Ardy wrote. 

Ardy said that it was their maid who first tested positive for COVID-19. 

“First was our Yaya. Then after 7 days she was okay and negative after isolation and following Dr L's protocol,” he said. 

They thought that Miriam’s symptoms was a side effect of an anti-COVID-19 vaccine. 

“@miriamq888 had symptoms a day or two after we had our Janssen jab, but we assumed it was side effect of the vaccine.. Then a day or two after her symptoms appeared, I had symptoms.. but thought it might just be regular flu,” he said. 

“Miriam's antigen test was negative, and then we tested a day later and she was positive na,” he added.
