Davao City First District Rep. Paolo Z. Duterte confirmed on Monday that he has contracted the Covid-19 and is in isolation in a hospital in the city.
In a statement, the presidential son said his reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test revealed he is positive for the infection.
Duterte said he is currently in isolation at a hospital while his family are under quarantine at their residence.
He, however, assured the public that he is not manifesting any severe symptoms.
“I thank everyone who showed their concern to me and my family,” he added.
“Rest assured that I will comply with the quarantine and will continue to serve the people of Davao even in isolation,” he further added.
