Davao congressman Paolo Duterte is Covid-19 positive

DAVAO CITY – The deadly coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) is not choosy when it comes to infecting its victim.

This time, Rep Paolo Duterte, the presidential son and representative of Davao’s First District, was the latest victim of the “killer” virus.

Rep Duterte confirmed that the result of his recent reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test, found him positive of the coronavirus.

To protect his immediate family, the congressman was put in isolation at an undisclosed hospital in the city.

Duterte said his family was also under a 14-day quarantine period but only at their residence.

The presidential son assured his constituents that he is not manifesting severe symptoms. “I thank everyone who showed their concern to me and my family,” Rep Duterte pointed out.

“Rest assured that I will comply with the quarantine and will continue to serve the people of Davao even in isolation,” he concluded. (PNA)

Meanwhile, it was also learned that there are now over 500,000 people vaccinated in Davao City, and the targetted herd immunity is near.
