President Rodrigo Duterte’s spokesman on Monday wished Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso well after he contracted Covid-19.

“We wish Mayor Isko Moreno good health. We hope that he gets well soon,” Palace spokesman Harry Roque said in a media briefing.

Domagoso, who was already fully vaccinated against Covid-19, tested positive for the disease on Sunday.

His infection came a week after Manila Vice Mayor Honey Lacuña contracted the disease.

Following Domagoso’s infection, Roque reiterated that Covid-19 vaccines do not prevent infections and only ward off severe disease.

“Ang sinasabi ng mga eksperto, lahat ng bakuna natin epektibo para maiwasan ang seryosong pagkakasakit o pagkakamatay dahil po sa Covid-19. So iyan pong karanasan ni Mayor Yorme ngayon,” Roque said.

Domagoso on Sunday said he had been experiencing symptoms such as cough, colds and body pains.

Only recently, Domagoso was the target of President Rodrigo Duterte’s tirades, criticizing him for his sexy photos in the past. John Ezekiel J. Hirro
