Davao City Vice Mayor Sebastian “Baste” Duterte voluntarily goes under home quarantine after showing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) symptoms.
KAMI learned that his elder sister, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte said that Baste is now listed as a “person under monitoring.”
In a report by the Manila Bulletin (authored by Antonio Colina), Mayor Sara said during an interview at the Davao City Disaster Radio (DCDR) 87.5 on Monday that Baste is now in “self-isolation” after suffering from a sore throat, cough, and fever.
Sara also mentioned that her brother Baste visited Manila three weeks ago before he manifested the symptoms of COVID-19.
As reported by the GMA News Online, Sara told Baste not to avail of the COVID-19 test kit yet because of the limited supplies. She said that it is best that those with severe symptoms should be tested.
“I suggested that he skip the testing because we lack test kits,” Sara said.
“Hopefully, he does not have COVID-19. Get well, soon,” she added.
According to a report by the Inquirer, Sara also mentioned that Baste has inflamed tonsils that could be the reason for his sore throat.
“Tonsillitis has been a recurrent condition for my brother,” she explained.
In a previous report by KAMI, Mayor Sara was among the government officials who underwent home quarantine after she had lunch with Senator Sherwin Gatchalian who was exposed to a resource person who tested positive for COVID-19.
Sebastian “Baste” Duterte is the youngest son of President Rodrigo Duterte with his ex-wife, Elizabeth Zimmerman.
