Sen. also tested positive for coronavirus disease (COVID1-19). Ramon “Bong” Revilla, Jr.
“Sad news – I am COVID-19 positive,” Revilla said in an online post.
If you recall, a senator staff tested positive and died in March.
Aside from Revilla, his wife Bacoor City, Cavite Mayor Lani Mercado and their children have also been tested. They are all negative.
“Kami ay nagpatest at nag-isolate agad matapos may mag-positive sa aming household at isa sa aking mga tauhan.”
The actor-turned-politician went to the Senate on Monday. The next day, his family commemorated the 40th day of the death of his father, former Sen. Ramon Revilla Sr.
“Sa payo po ng aking doktor ay itutuloy ko ngayon ang aking quarantine, but will be under observation.”
The legislator called for a public prayer and hoped he would recover from his illness.
“Ngayon pa lang, salamat po sa inyong mga panalangin. Thank you for your prayers.”
Revilla is the fourth senator to test positive for COVID-19. Senate Majority leader Juan Miguel Zubiri, Sen. Sonny Angara, and the controversial Sen. Koko Pimentel.
