Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto gets infected with COVID-19
MANILA, Philippines — Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19, the mayor announced Monday.
In a Facebook post, Sotto disclosed that he experienced mild symptoms of COVID-19, prompting him to undergo an antigen test that yielded a positive result.
“Nakakainis!!! Nag positive pa sa covid (mild symptoms kaya nag-antigen ako),” said Sotto.
(Annoying!!! Tested positive for COVID. I have mild symptoms, so I took an antigen test.)
Because of this, Sotto said that he will either reschedule all his appointments or conduct them online to enable himself to isolate and recover.
He then urged the public to keep wearing masks as protection against the virus, especially amid a reported rise in cases of pneumonia.
“Paalala ng DOH (Department of Health) na tumataas ang bilang ng kaso ng pneumonia, at nandiyan pa rin ang COVID, kaya highly recommended na mag-mask tayo,” said Sotto.
(The DOH reminded us that the number of pneumonia cases is rising, and COVID is still present, so it is highly recommended that we wear masks.)
“Lalo na kung may nararamdaman o kapag may nakakaharap na ibang tao,” he added.
(Especially if you are feeling unwell or when facing other people.)
NAKAKAINIS!!! Nag positive pa sa covid (mild symptoms kaya nag-antigen ako)!Posting para humingi ng pasensiya sa lahat…
