Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque COVID-19 test result revealed.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque on Monday revealed his COVID-19 test result during today’s press briefing.
Roque opened the press briefing by announcing that he received the COVID-19 test result on Monday morning. According to Roque, he had tested “positive” for COVID-19.
“Yung magiging case bulletin ng DOH, kasama na rin po ang inyong abang lingkod because as of 11:29 this morning, nakuha ko po ang resulta na positibo po ako para sa COVID,” Roque said.
According to Roque, he took the COVID-19 test only yesterday because of the meeting with the President later today. However, he received his COVID-19 test result earlier this morning and it came out “positive”.
Roque then told reporters that he’s asymptomatic and didn’t feel any comorbidity. He also said that he’s completely surprised and shocked by the result.
Roque admitted that he regretted that he didn’t get vaccinated at the Philippine General Hospital at that time, adding that maybe he wouldn’t have gotten the virus if he had been vaccinated at PGH.
However, Roque said that they also have to follow the protocols that they should first prioritize the medical frontliners.
Roque ended the press briefing by reminding medical frontliners to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
