Optimistiko si Senador Juan Miguel Zubiri na kanyang malalampasan ang sakit na novel coronavirus o COVID-19 habang pinaalalahanan nito ang lahat na lubhang maging maingat para makaiwas sa sakit na kasalukuyang lumalaganap sa buong mundo.
Inihayag ni Zubiri, pangulo ng Philippine Eskrima Kali Arnis Federation, na hindi nito namalayan kung paano nakuha ang virus mula sa kanyang mga dinaluhan na pagpupulong.
“To my dear fellow Filipinos, my Kababayans. It is with sadness that I announce that I am positive for Covid 19. I had a test taken last Friday while on self-quarantine and this afternoon I received a call from Sec. Duque on my condition,” sabi ni Zubiri.
“My heart sank with what he had said but I’m uplifted with the fact that i am asymptomatic and have no fever or cough nor am i weak or have any headaches. My decision to self-quarantine last Wednesday evening after session was the best decision i made and could have protected my Family from contamination,” sabi nito.
“As one of those very early on in the Senate who espoused and advocated for stronger Government response on controlling Covid 19, i was very careful in my dealings with people at work in the Senate. I practiced social distancing as well as a no handshake policy but yet i got contaminated,” paliwanag nito. (Lito Oredo)
