“Higit sa lahat, ang aking pasasalamat sa Panginoong Maykapal dahil hindi Niya ako pinabayaan bagkus ay pinagaling ako laban sa sakit na ito,” Malapitan added.

(Most of all, I am thankful for the Almighty God because He did not neglect me and He healed me from this disease.)

Malapitan urged the public to get vaccinated, especially senior citizens like him, as the additional layer of protection helped him battle the disease.

“Napakalaking tulong na ako ay fully-vaccinated ng AstraZeneca kahit ako ay tinamaan ng sakit. Hindi ako nakaranas nang malalang COVID-19 dahil may proteksyon ako ng bakuna,” he encouraged.

(It is a big help that I am fully vaccinated with AstraZeneca’s vaccine despite being infected. I did not experience severe COVID-19 because I have the vaccine’s protection.)
