[VIDEO]: Marcos tests positive for COVID-19
No Intensive Treatment Necessary
President Bongbong Marcos tested positive for Covid-19 again, Press Secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles said. He first contracted the disease in 2020. However, there’s no intensive treatment necessary. Just the normal protocal. He’s already in isolation for 7 days. Immediate contacts are all negative.
Back to Work Soon
The President only had a slight fever. He had the usual treatment for it unless specified by his physician while he’s under observation. Otherwise, he can go back to work after 7 days of isolation.
The antigen test was enough to determine the presence of the virus in the president’s system. He may undergo RTCPR test after the 7-day period but it’s not necessary. He’s strong and unlikely to develop serious symptoms. However, he needs some rest while manageable tasks are ongoing.
