Senator Sonny Angara has announced that he is also positive for COVID-19. He is the third Philippine senator to test positive for COVID-19 after Senators Migz Zubiri and Koko Pimentel.
“I regret to announce that today, March 26, I received my test result and it is positive for COVID-19. I have been feeling some symptoms like mild fever, cough, headaches and general weakness,” Senator Angara said in a statement.
He said he has not been in contact with the public since taking the test last March 16.
“I ask for your prayers that together we are able to pull through this tremendous challenge,” he said.
“Let us continue to support all efforts to fight the further spread of the virus. Let us support our frontliners on the streets, in the emergency rooms as they are key to the effort,” he added. “With hope, sacrifice, and unity of effort, we shall overcome.”
