Sotto denies use of DOH accredited COVID-19 testing kit

Senate President Vicente Sotto III who tested negative on coronavirus disease (COVID-19) denied the use of limited Department of Health (DOH) accredited COVID-19 testing kit.

He said the test was conducted privately through a friend. 

In a Facebook post he clarified, “I have been tested last March 16, 2020, Monday to ensure that I can still perform my duties and meet key people to help address the needs of our country in this trying times. My test turned out negative but since I’m manifesting dry cough and sore throat for days now and due to my age and exposure to PUIs and PUMs, I took a confirmatory test.”

Sotto clarified that he has not yet received the results and he did not ask for VIP treatment.
