Bantag and other officials were advised to go on a quarantine after they tested positive of the coronavirus. In a text message last September 21, Bantag speculated that he might have gotten the virus from his driver and close-in security staff who also contracted the said disease.
Despite experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, Bantag was not brought to a hospital as his condition became better after sometime. Chaclag’s positive result on the other hand was announced last September 19, as he also experienced mild symptoms of the disease.
