Benjamin Abalos recovers from COVID-19


This 84-year-old former head of the Commission on Elections is unstoppable.

Benjamin Abalos, Sr. is back on his feet after a bout versus COVID-19, his son ex-Mandaluyong Mayor Benhur Abalos proudly announced on Facebook. The two, who both got infected with the virus, even flexed finger hearts for family, friends, and supporters who prayed for their recovery.

“My dad is officially healed of Covid19 and has been officially discharged from the hospital. I’m still in the hospital, taking care of my mom. She has already developed Covid antibodies in her system. She might be off the ventilator machine by Friday,” the younger Abalos said, thanking doctors and medical staff who attended to them.
