MANILA – Senator Sonny Angara on Monday announced that he has been finally discharged from the hospital after fully recovering from coronavirus disease (Covid-19).
“After several days in the ER and the Covid wing, my doctors finally sent me home today — negative for the virus and pneumonia free,” Angara said in an Instagram post.
“Big, big thanks to my doctors and nurses for taking care of me and to my family, loved ones, friends for all the prayers, letters and food that you sent,” he added.
The lawmaker, who was confirmed positive for the disease on March 26, said he is “truly grateful” for the gift of life, and even more so now “for those at the front lines who safeguard our lives and protect our society.”
During his stay at the hospital, Angara said he personally saw the heroic sacrifices of front-line medical workers as they fight to win the battle against Covid-19.
“I met nurses and doctors who don’t go home anymore, some even doing double duty in other hospitals. They truly are REAL HEROES,” he said.
“I will be at home with my son when he celebrates his birthday this weekend but many of our health workers will not make it home as a measure of protection for their families,” Angara said. (PNA)
