President Rodrigo Duterte visited the Cardinal Santos Medical Center in San Juan City on Sunday, the eve of his third State of the Nation Address (Sona).

But presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said there was nothing to worry about the President’s health.


“I confirm that the President had a routine medical check up at Cardinal Santos Hospital tonight before rehearsing for the SONA,” Roque said in a statement.

“He spent about an hour and a half for the routine examination. He was declared to be in good health,” he added.
