Duterte to disclose result of his neurological consultation, says Palace
By Prince Golez
Malacañang assured that President Rodrigo Duterte will inform the public of his health condition.
Duterte, whose health has been the subject to speculation, is set to see his neurologist today after he experienced “unbearable pain” in his lower back following a recent motorcycle accident.
“The Palace meanwhile reiterates that the public need not be apprehensive about the President’s health. His consultation with a doctor is aimed at determining the medical condition of his body, as well as finding out whether his previous spinal injury from a past motorcycle accident has been aggravated by his recent fall,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo told reporters Wednesday.
“The President shall inform our countrymen on the result of his medical consultation,” added Panelo.
On Tuesday, Duterte was forced to cut short his trip to Japan for the enthronement of Emperor Naruhito due to back pain.
