FORMER senator Bongbong Marcos has tested negative for novel coronavirus disease after he felt ill from travel in Spain.

“Yesterday, we had ourselves and our entire staff tested for COVID-19. Fortunately, we all tested NEGATIVE,” wrote Marcos’ wife, lawyer Liza Araneta-Marcos, in a statement on Thursday.

Araneta-Marcos also denied rumors circulating on social media that her husband’s lungs collapsed and is dying and was “airlifted” to Singapore on board a private plane of Chavit Singson.

Marcos who has been long suffering from asthma came home from Spain and now in isolation, alive and ‘recovering’, said Senator Imee Marcos.

Araneta-Marcos also said, “He is not dying. Nor is he dead… he is at home and very much alive.”

She also thanked those who reached out to the family to show concern following the social media rumors.
