“Despite my extra efforts in observing maximum health protocols, I have tested positive for COVID-19,” Makilala town Vice Mayor Ryan Tabanay informed his constituents in a statement.

Tabanay, a lawyer, said he is now in isolation. He took the antigen test after he had fever on Saturday, May 29; and the test yielded positive results. So, he took the confirmatory swab test, which results came out on Monday, confirming him positive for coronavirus.
