“My Dr. sister says my prior result was a false positive as none of us have symptoms,” the vice presidential aspirant went on.

Earlier, Pangilinan expressed surprise that he tested positive for the virus when he had “zero symptoms” of COVID-19. His sister then raised the possibility that the result was a false positive.

The senator nevertheless stressed the need to make COVID-19 tests free and available for those who need it.

“We need free testing for all who need it so we are all better prepared to manage Covid,” Pangilinan said.
