De Lima revealed that she tested negative for the virus.

The former senator had to undergo an RT-PCR test due to her exposure to DILG Secretary Benhur Abalos who tested positive for the coronavirus.

“I had to undergo an RT-PCR test yesterday afternoon, given my exposure to Sec. Benhur Abalos who tested positive after he checked on me last Sunday in the aftermath of the hostage-taking incident,” she said.

Currently, the former senator is confined at the Philippine National Police General Hospital.

Leila de Lima has been placed under further monitoring due to her lingering chest pains following the hostage-taking on Sunday, October 9.

It was on Sunday morning when she was taken hostage by an inmate identified as Feliciano Sulayao Jr.

The suspect tried to escape the Camp Crame Custodial Center where the former senator is being detained.

De Lima noted in a statement that while she was praying, Sulayao entered her detention cell, took her hostage, and pressed a sharp object against her chest.

Eventually, Sulayao was killed by a responding police officer.

His two other companions identified as Arnel Cabintoy, and Idang Susukan were also killed.

De Lima attended the resumption of a Muntinlupa Regional Trial Court hearing on her remaining drug charges the day after the incident, which had been reset after Abalos tested positive for COVID-19.

She has been held at Camp Crame on drug charges since 2017. She has categorically denied the charges leveled against her.
