Sen. Sonny Angara, Ikatlong Politician na Tinamaan ng COVID-19

Coronavirus pandemic is slowly gripping the Philippines. From over a hundred cases way back on March 15, we're now up to 700 as of March 26. Even prominent personalities and politicians are not safe. Just today, yet another high-ranking senator has tested positive for this highly-communicable disease, Senator Sonny Angara.

Senator Angara is the third high-ranking politician to test positive for coronavirus, also known as COVID-19. The first ones who tested positive were Senate Majority Leader Miguel Zubiri and Senator Koko Pimentel, the latter who even earned the ire of the netizens after disobeying quarantine protocols.

On his official Facebook account, the senator revealed unlike Zubiri who is asymptomatic, he has been feeling the symptoms of the disease. For some time now, Angara has been experiencing mild fever, cough, headaches, and general weakness. Just this morning, he received the results of his COVID-19 test, confirming the worse.

"I regret to announce that today, March 26, I received my test result and it is positive for COVID-19. I have been feeling some symptoms like mild fever, cough, headaches and general weakness."

On the bright side, Senator Angara revealed that ever since he took the test on March 16, he has taken it upon himself to self-isolate. Since March 16, he has not been in contact with anyone, even members of his family. This lessens his chances of spreading the virus to other people.

Many netizens lauded the senator for following the protocol. In the meantime, he's asking the public to be mindful of their surroundings, and continue to follow the stay-at-home order during the enhanced community quarantine.

"Let us continue to support all efforts to fight the further spread of the virus. Let us support our frontliners on the streets, in the emergency rooms as they are key to the effort. With hope, sacrifice, and unity of effort, we shall overcome."
