0 685

The COVID-19 surge is real, and Navotas Mayor Toby Tiangco has not been spared.

After spending more than a year holed up at home due to fear for his health, the politiko announced Sunday, January 2 that he has caught the virus.

“Ako po ay humihingi ng paumanhin sa lahat ng aking nakaharap noong nakaraang mga araw at nakikiusap na obserbahan nang mabuti ang inyong kalusugan. Kung meron kayong nararamdamang kakaiba, sumangguni po agad sa doctor,” the politiko said.

“Dahil sa aking pagiging immuno-compromised at dahil sa aking severe asthma, madalas po akong mag-self antigen test. Kahapon negative po ang antigen ko, pero kaninang tanghali ay nagpositive ako kaya agad po akong nagpa-RT-PCR test,” he added.

He promised to still keep working as he goes through a two-week isolation period, with an appeal for Navoteños to double up on protecting themselves against COVID-19.

“Muli, pakiusap ko po sa lahat na maging doble o triple sa pag-iingat, gawin ang health at safety protocols, at magpabakuna o booster,” he added.

Get well soon!
