Malakas pa rin! Pidi Barzaga tests negative for COVID-19
Cavite Rep. Elpidio Barzaga has tested negative for the coronavirus disease 2019, he announced Tuesday, March 31.
In a Facebook post, Barzaga said he was happy he was free of the virus despite being a senior citizen. The congressman had himself tested last month after being exposed to a person who had COVID-19.
“Bagamat ako ay 70 years old, with a heart problem, diabetic at may asthma, sinabihan ako ng Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) na NEGATIBO ang resulta ng swab testing na ginawa sa akin noong ika-17 ng Marso,” he said.
Barzaga said the date of the release of his COVID-19 test result was significant because it coincided with the 20th anniversary of his heart bypass operation.
“Ang aking karanasan ay nagpapatunay lamang na anumang karamdaman, kasama ang COVID-19, ay kayang labanan,” he said.
