Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto has tested positive for COVID-19, he announced on Saturday, January 15.

Sotto said he’s experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 but will continue to carry out his duties as mayor.

“Hi everyone, bad news, I’ve tested positive for covid-19. I have sore throat, fever, and body aches, but please don’t worry! I’ll continue to work remotely while in isolation for the next 7 days,” he tweeted.

Sotto said the more contagious Omicron variant might have infected him since he didn’t get sick during previous COVID-19 cases surges even after he was exposed to his driver, who had the virus.

The mayor was forced to quarantine in March last year after his driver died of COVID-19.

“Naka ilan close call ako sa Delta (gaya nung sa driver ko) pero di ako nahawaan.. Matindi talaga ang pagkalat ng Omicron variant– sabi nga ng ibang eksperto, LAHAT TAYO ay mae-expose dito. Kaya laging mag-iingat, magpalakas tayo ng katawan, at maging responsable pag may sintomas,” he said.

Sotto is fully vaccinated against COVID-19. It’s unknown, however, if he already received his booster shot.
