Wa epek double mask! John Rey Tiangco gets COVID-19 despite precautions
By Billy Begas
House Committee on Trade and Industry and Navotas Rep. John Rey Tiangco said the RT-PCR test has confirmed that he is positive for COVID-19.
Tiangco made the statement on Wednesday night to fulfill his promise that he will reveal the result of the confirmatory test after he tested positive in an antigen test conducted on Tuesday.
“Sa kabila ng lahat ng aking pag-iingat, hindi pa rin po ako nakaligtas sa virus na ito. Sabi nga nila, OA ako dahil doble-doble ang aking face mask, di ako umiinom o kumakain kapag nasa labas, at nagbibihis at naliligo agad pagdating ng bahay. Gayunpaman, nahawaan pa rin po ako. Kaya higitan n’yo pa po ang inyong pag-iingat, lalo na kung di talaga maiwasang lumabas ng bahay para magtrabaho,” Tiangco said.
He also reiterated his call to those who had contact with him to undergo a free swab test and coordinate with the barangay and health centers.
