The candidate acknowledged that the determination of the postponement of the contest on the same day that it would be held, “It was disappointing after four weeks of hard work, we all knew it was the safest decision.”

Unfortunately, I was one of the girls who tested positive for COVID0-19, as a result, I remain in quarantine in Puerto Rico and will do so during the vacation period. The @missworld Organization has ensured that we are receiving the highest level of care and I would like to thank them and of course my director @paulaabbandonato for keeping me safe and for reorganizing everything. I know that some members of the Miss World team have stayed here to support us instead of returning home to their families and I am eternally grateful to them, ”he wrote in the message.

“I have met the most amazing girls here who have truly become a family and not being able to say goodbye was so difficult. At least now we will meet and celebrate together this incredible brotherhood, “added the beauty queen.
