Senator Bong Revilla said he has no idea he was positive of Covid-19 until one of their househelps had it.
He then decided to be tested with wife, Bacoor Mayor Lani Mercado, and their younger children.
“Grabe ha,” Senator Bong recalled, “while negative lahat sina Lani at ang mga bata, which, of course, thankful ako, ako was found positive.
“Our doctor immediately ordered me to isolate myself. I’ll probably be in quarantine, our doctor said, for three, if not more, weeks.
“Sana marami ang magdasal na gumaling ako kaagad,” he added.
Senator Bong is the fourth senator to test positive for coronavirus. The other three are now all well – Senators Juan Miguel Zubiri, Sonny Angara, and Koko Pimentel.
Senator Bong and his siblings just marked the 40th death anniversary of their patriarch, Senator Ramon Revilla, Sr., who passed away June 26 at age 93.
