"At that time, they were saying it's a new respiratory tract infection. It's a virus that's going around. We don't really know what it is and what it does, but it attacks the respiratory system first and then travels to other parts of your body," Perez shared.

"And I was like, 'Oh my God.' It was terrifying," she continued. "I remember my manager was with me, and I said, "Tarik, don't let me die in Bangkok." And he goes, "Oh my God, you're scaring me." And the head of the ICU says, 'You should be scared, sir. This is serious. We're going to have to put her in a separate room.'"
