The results of the tests for coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) conducted on President Rodrigo Duterte and Senator Bong Go “turned out negative.”
“We are fit and healthy to perform our duties,” Go said in a text message.
“But just like our advice to the general public, we will take precautionary measures seriously,” he said.
Go said he and the President will “comply with the advice of our health officials in order to remain healthy and avoid the spread of the virus while still being able to perform our mandate to the Filipino people.”
“Now more than ever, we as elected officials should do everything we can to be of service to the Filipino people,” the senator from Davao City said.
“The government as a whole should still do its job in a manner that will not put the health of others at risk,” Go said.
He added, “Hindi pwedeng ipagpaliban ang tulong sa kapwa Pilipino, tuloy tuloy dapat ang serbisyo.”
