FERDINAND ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. has tested positive for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) after the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine released the former senator’s test results on March 28.
In his Facebook account, his spokesman Atty. Vic Rodriguez said “Gumaganda na ang kondisyong pangkalusugan ni dating Sen. Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos, Jr. makaraang ihayag sa resulta ng clinical test na isinagawa ng Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) na siya’y positibo sa CoVid19.”
Last week, Senador Imee Marcos said that his brother was unwell after coming home from Spain but was tested negative for the coronavirus disease along with his whole family.
Marcos now is undergoing treatment in an undisclosed hospital after he was rushed to the emergency room for having difficulty breathing.
He said he went to a hospital on March 14 after experiencing chest pains but went home as too many patients were waiting at the time.
Rodriguez said Marcos left isolation on March 22.
