Palace: Duterte ‘very transparent’ about his health
By Prince Golez
Malacanang reiterated on Tuesday that President Rodrigo Duterte has always been transparent about his health condition.
“You must remember that the President is very transparent on his health condition,” said Duterte’s spokesman Salvador Panelo.
Panelo also said the Chief Executive has been open about the state of his health since the presidential campaign in 2016.
“When during the presidential campaign, he was already telling us na matanda na siya. Lahat ng sakit nang ganoong edad, meron siya. And then when he assumed the presidency, sinabi na niya, inisa-isa niya yung sakit niya. Sinasabi niya naman. Pag nagpa-check up siya. Sinasabi niya. ‘Tignan mo, nagpa-regular blood check up ako’,” according to him.
“In other words, kung talagang serious, he would tell us. Pero kung sakit ng ulo lang, migraine, hindi naman kailangang sabihin yun.”
Panelo also assured there is nothing to worry about the President’s health.
“No, nothing to worry about. You will see him. He has 4 o’clock. I think meron siyang 4 o’clock,” he said.
