Cavite Vice Governor Jolo Revilla has taken to social media to ask prayers from his followers after his father, Sen. Bong Revilla, got tested positive for COVID-19.
KAMI learned that on August 9, the senator released a statement to announce that he is already a carrier of the deadly virus.
“Nakakalungkot po na balita - I am COVID-19 positive.
Pero huwag po kayo mag-alala, I am okay. Sila Lani at ang mga bata ay okay rin at sa awa ng Diyos, ay negative naman lahat.
Kami ay nagpatest at nag-isolate agad matapos may mag-positive sa aming household at isa sa aking mga tauhan.
I was last in the Senate on Monday before all of this, and was last out on Tuesday nung 40th day ni Daddy.
Sa payo po ng aking doktor ay itutuloy ko ngayon ang aking quarantine, but will be under observation.
Kasama ang inyong mga dasal, at sa grasya ng Panginoon, makakaraos at malalampasan din natin ito.
Ngayon pa lang, salamat po sa inyong mga panalangin. Thank you for your prayers.”
Jolo then wrote a heartfelt post regarding the revelation of his father, who contracted COVID-19 asymptomatically.
“Mga kalalawigan, nais ko pong hilingin sa inyong lahat na sama-sama po nating ipagdasal ang agarang paggaling at kaligtasan ng aking papa na si Sen. Ramon Bong Revilla, Jr. na nag-positibo sa COVID-19. Sa awa ng Diyos, asymptomatic naman po siya habang ang aking ina na si Mayor Lani sampu ng aming pamilya ay nag-negatibo. Malaki po ang magagawa ng ating pinagsama-samang panalangin. Ngayon pa lang, taos puso na po kaming nagpapasalamat sa inyong panalangin at pagmamahal!”
Bong Revilla is one of the incumbent Senators in the Philippines. He won in 2019 despite facing a heavy controversy with regards to his pork barrel.
Several days ago, he shared some emotional scenes from the wake of his father.
The actor-turned-politician also uploaded a video showing the emotional moment inside the room where Ramon Sr. died.
