President Rodrigo Duterte reappeared in public on Monday after two weeks of absence due to his exposure to a Covid-positive staff.

Duterte delivered his weekly televised public address, which he skipped last week.

“I am glad, maligaya ako, na nag-resume tayo sa ating programang ‘Talk to the People’,” the President said.

This is the 76-year-old leader’s first public appearance since January 24 as he underwent quarantine.

On Thursday, Malacañang said that Duterte was screened twice for Covid-19 and tested negative following the exposure.

The President has been fully vaccinated against COVID and gotten his booster shot last month.
