In the early months of the pandemic in 2020, Marcos Jr. was one of the high-profile politicians who contracted the disease. He just came from a trip to Spain then when he battled the disease. It was a long recovery for him.

Last July 8, Malacañang announced that Pres. Bongbong Marcos tested positive for COVID-19 in the antigen test. He had to undergo 7-day isolation as per the protocol for vaccinated individuals. Then, he had a slight fever but the Palace assured that the 64-year-old President was doing fine.

Marcos Jr. recovered fast from COVID-19. The symptoms vanished in just a few days and continue working amid the isolation through virtual meetings with his Cabinet members.

Recently, Pres. Bongbong Marcos finished his 7-day isolation. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, Malacañang assured that the President is “okay” based on the findings of his doctor. He is closely monitored by his lead physician, Dr. Samuel Zacate.

A day before his 7-day isolation ended, Marcos Jr. was already reported to be symptom-free. Despite having no signs of COVID-19, his doctor told him to finish his 7-day isolation.
