Returning Sen. Jinggoy Estrada Gives Update on Condition of Former Sen. Enrile Now

JINGGOY ESTRADA – The returning Senator gave an update on the condition of former Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile now in the hospital.

Although the COVID-19 virus visibly does not exempt anyone, it is known to the public that minors and the elderly ones are more susceptible to getting infected. Recently, in the Philippines, higher daily cases compared to those logged in the previous weeks hit the record.

The Department of Health (DOH) previously warned that the quarantine measure may be changed in case the cases will continue increasing and the hospital utilization rate would go up. One of those who was recently diagnosed with COVID-19 is former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile.

Enrile, through a social media post, confirmed that he was diagnosed with mild COVID-19 pneumonia. He had no chills and discomfort except for coughing. He stressed that he is not going to die yet thus his critics and enemies must not celebrate.
