President Marcos will not attend the Philippine Army’s 127th-anniversary celebration at Camp O’Donnell in Capas, Tarlac, on Friday so that he can fully recover from flu-like symptoms.

The Presidential Communications Office (PCO) said Marcos was looking forward to resuming his public engagements once his doctor allows him to return to work.
