Dad bods whoop it up at the Senate
MANILA, Philippines — Interior Secretary Eduardo Año and three senators who all have all recovered from COVID-19 posed for a photo on the sidelines of plenary budget debates at the Senate on Tuesday.
Face mask-clad Año, Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri and Senators Sonny Angara and Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. posed with their thumbs up, as seen in the photo shared by Zubiri to reporters.
Zubiri jested, they all have “antibodies and dad bodies.”
The Senate was deliberating on the budget of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) when the photo was taken.
Senator Joel Villanueva shared his own photo with the four COVID-19 survivors but not without adding humor.
In his caption of the photo, he described the four as “[g]rupong ayaw ko sana kasama kaso no choice.”

He was infected with the respiratory disease last Aug. 15 and recovered in September.
Meanwhile, Angara and Zubiri first tested positive for the virus in March and tested positive anew in May and July, respectively.
Revilla tested positive back in August. All senators have already recovered from COVID-19. [ac]
