Toby Tiangco is not hiding but is simply taking care of his health.

The Navotas mayor hoped to silence bashers and doubters who have been accusing him of avoiding public appearances or even neglecting his people.

“May mga nagtataka po kung bakit naka-home quarantine pa rin ako. Salamat po sa concern pero wag po kayong mag-alala, OK po ako. Pinayuhan lang po ako ng aking doktor na doblehin ang pag-iingat dahil ako ay highly allergic at highly asthmatic. Ang ibig sabihin nito, mabilis akong mahawa sa virus at mas matagal ako magkasakit,” the politiko said in a lengthy Facebook post that detailed his medical condition.

He made the case that he had a bad cough back in January, but it was so bad that he was still drinking medicines up until late March. He was also that worried when he came in contact with someone who had COVID-19, so he really took his self-quarantine seriously.

“Ngunit wag kayo mag-alala, simula pa lang pag-gising hanggang pagtulog, ako ay naka-monitor sa chat group ng mga opisyal ng lungsod para sa mga ginagawa nating aksyon sa pagtugon sa problema ng COVID-19,” Tiangco added.

“Hindi po ako nagtatago, wala naman akong utang, bakit ako magtatago? Hehehe. Ako ay nag-iingat lang,” he clarified.
