Imee Marcos, sister of Bong Bong, told reporters that her brother has arrived from Spain and that he had to be checked with COVID-19 as he was not feeling well.
“Hindi pa kami nagkikita ni Bongbong kasi last week, dumating galing sa Spain yata. Eh masama ‘yong lagay. Dire-diretso sa bahay. Wala naman daw pupuntahan na quarantine. Eh after a few days, nagpa-test na siya kasi parang pangit na ‘yong lagay nya. Eh wala pa ring resulta ‘yong test. But he’s at home” Imee said.
In Bong’s official facebook page, he thanked his supporters for the words of encouragement.
” I am deeply touched and overwhelmed by your concern over my condition. Don’t worry, I am doing ok and contrary to popular belief, I am home on self-quarantine.
As my sister said, a few days ago I was feeling a little under the weather and as a result went to get checked. We are still waiting for the results.
Fortunately, I feel much better and am getting stronger by the day. I have no doubt in my mind that this is partly due to the excellent work of the nurses and doctors who helped me during this time.
I am inspired and moved by the show of courage and commitment of our health workers. You are our true heroes in these most trying times. Thank you!!
I am hoping and praying for everyone’s safety and good health. Please don’t let the sacrifices of health workers and other frontliners go to waste. Let us all stay home.”
For now, he is still waiting for his COVID-19 test result.
