Mayor Isko leaves hospital after bout with COVID-19; Sen. Lapid, AFP chief, Laguna solon also infected
During his bout with Covid-19, the mayor experienced mild Covid-19 symptoms such as slight coughs, colds, and body pains.
Domagoso also reported loss of smell and taste during his confinement.
The mayor said those who came in close contact with him have gone on self-isolation and underwent testing.
Sen. Manuel Lito Lapid and Armed Forces (AFP) chief-of-staff Lt. Gen. Jose Faustino, Jr. have tested positive for COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated.
Lapid is the seventh Philippine senator who tested positive for COVID-19 after Senators Juan Miguel Zubiri, Juan Edgardo Sonny Angara, Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel, Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., and Ronald Dela Rosa.
Two former senators – Heherson Alvarez and John Osmena – have died due to complications from the virus.
The offices of both Senator Lapid and Gen. Faustino disclosed that they underwent COVID-19 RT-PCR tests and found positive for the virus.
Lawyer Jericho Acedera, Lapid’s chief of staff, said Lapid was confined for treatment at the Medical City inside the Clark Freeport in Pampanga.
Acedera said Lapid’s doctors consider his case as “mild to moderate.”
