Senator and presidential aspirant Panfilo Lacson said he has fully recovered from the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).
Lacson added that he will continue to finish the 10-day mandatory quarantine.
“Ako as of Sunday, fully recovered na, wala ng symptoms, tinatapos ko lang yung aking quarantine,” he said during a radio interview.
“Ginawang 10 days. So nag-positive ako January 4, sa January 14 or Friday, tapos na yung aking quarantine” he added.
Lacson confirmed last week that he tested positive for Covid-19.
Senators Francis Pangilinan and Sherwin Gatchalian also confirmed that they were infected with Covid-19.
However, Pangilinan, Vice President Leni Robredo’s vice presidential candidate, said Tuesday that his initial diagnosis was a case of “false positive” after he, along with his family, tested negative for Covid-19 after undergoing a reswab. – Ronald Espartinez
