MANILA, Philippines—Chief Justice Renato Corona was brought to the intensive care unit of The Medical City hospital in Pasig City early Wednesday, according to Supreme Court spokesperson Jose Midas Marquez.
In a text message, Marquez said Corona was immediately taken to the ICU after tests conducted by his attending doctors showed that his “Troponin T level (a blood test) is elevated.”
“Diagnosis is possible heart attack. He’s being transferred to ICU,” Marquez said.
Corona, who underwent a heart bypass operation a few years ago, was brought to the hospital immediately after he testified in his impeachment trial in the Senate on Tuesday.
