Senate Majority Floor Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri has confirmed on Monday that he tested positive for COVID-19, this after Health Secretary Francisco Duque relayed the results to him.
In an interview, Zubiri said he has not yet shown any symptoms of the viral respiratory disease.
“To my dear fellow Filipinos, my Kababayans. It is with sadness that I announce that I am positive for Covid 19. I had a test taken last Friday while on self-quarantine and this afternoon I received a call from Sec. Duque on my condition,” Zubiri posted in his social media account.
The senator went into self-quarantine after possible exposure with one of Senate’s resource person who tested positive for the disease and later on died.
“Sa aking mga kababayans, makinig po tayo sa mga babala ng gobyerno at wag na po kayo lumabas sa inyong mga tahanan. God bless us all,” he added.
Meanwhile, Senators Win Gatchalian and Nancy Binay confirmed on Tuesday morning that they tested negative on coronavirus.
