Senator Sonny Angara announced on Monday that he has been sent home after he recovered from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
KAMI learned that the senator has tested negative for COVID-19 after two weeks he was diagnosed.
Through a Facebook post, Angara said that after he spent a few days in the emergency room and COVID wing of the hospital, he recovered from the coronavirus and he is “pneumonia free.”
“After several days in the ER and the covid wing my doctors finally sent me home today-- negative for the virus and pneumonia free,” he said.
He also took the chance to express his gratitude to the frontline health workers who took care of him when he was still recovering.
“I met nurses and doctors who don't go home anymore, some even doing double duty in other hospitals. They truly truly are REAL HEROES,” he said.
“I will be at home with my son when he celebrates his bday this weekend but many of our health workers will not make it home as a measure of protection for their families,” he added.
As previously reported by KAMI, Angara announced on March 26 that he tested positive for COVID-19. He was the 3rd senator who got infected with the coronavirus, after Senators Juan Miguel Zubiri and Koko Pimentel.
Juan Edgardo “Sonny” Angara is the son of former Senator Edgardo J. Angara. He has been serving in the Senate since 2013.
