Former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. confirmed Thursday (March 26) he is on self-quarantine after undergoing tests for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
In a statement, Marcos said he’s still awaiting the results of the COVID-19 test, which he took a few days ago since he was feeling “a little under the weather.”
“I am deeply touched and overwhelmed by your concern over my condition. Don’t worry, I am doing ok and contrary to popular belief, I am home on self-quarantine,” he said.
“Fortunately, I feel much better and am getting stronger by the day,” Marcos added.
Marcos’ statement was accompanied by a photo of him sitting in bed. He was seen holding up a copy of Thursday’s edition of the Daily Tribune.
The former senator’s sister, Senator Imee Marcos, earlier said Bongbong had himself checked because he felt unwell following a trip to Spain.
