MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and First Lady Liza Araneta Marcos are experiencing flu-like symptoms, the Presidential Communications Office (PCO) announced on Wednesday.

The first couple is fresh from their trip to Germany and the Czech Republic.


“Following their full schedule these last few days, the President and the First Lady developed flu-like symptoms. They have been taking fluids and medication to alleviate their symptoms. Currently, their vitals remain stable,” said the PCO in a statement.


“To ensure their speedy recovery, they have been advised by their attending physician to get some rest,” the PCO added.

The President has had to cancel several engagements planned this week, including a presidential luncheon with the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines on Thursday.

“All his appointments today and in the succeeding days have been canceled,” said PCO Secretary Cheloy Garafil in a message to reporters.

Aside from their Europe trip, Marcos also went on a back-to-back trip to Australia.
