MANILA, Philippines — Former President Rodrigo Duterte was taken to a hospital after slipping on the floor of a room in his house in Davao City, but he was pronounced in good health, Sen. Christopher “Bong” Go said on Saturday.

“It was an accident. He slipped in a room of his house. So Sen. Bong Go accompanied him [to the hospital] for a checkup,” Go’s office said in a Facebook post,” according to a post in Filipino on the Go’s Facebook account.


“According to Sen. Bong Go, he was thankful to God that there were no complications and that Tatay Digong [Father Digong, as his supporters call him] was in good condition after having an x-ray.”

In 2021, there was speculation that Duterte’s health was deteriorating after a brief absence from the public eye, but his spokesperson then, Harry Roque, stressed that the chief executive was healthy.
