Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano in Isolation due to COVID-19
ALAN PETER CAYETANO – The Senator tested positive for COVID-19 in the antigen test and is currently in isolation.
The threats of the COVID-19 pandemic are still present in the Philippines and several other nations across the globe. The World Health Organization (WHO) previously reiterated that the pandemic is “nowhere near over” amid countries easing their restrictions.
Prior to it, WHO emphasized that the pandemic is not over anywhere if it is not over everywhere. It admitted its expectation that cases in countries in Europe will increase amid the loose measures implemented to fight the virus.
A few weeks after the Elections 2022 in the Philippines, several politicians tested positive for COVID-19. Recently, another senator went in isolation after testing positive for COVID-19 in an antigen test.
Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, Senate President Migz Zubiri and several other lawmakers are praying for Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano who recently tested positive for COVID-19 in an antigen test. The Senate President confirmed about the matter during a late afternoon Senate session so “less people will ask for him”.
For her part, Cayetano’s sister and fellow lawmaker Sen. Pia Cayetano expressed her hope that her sister-in-law, Taguig Mayor Lani Cayetano, will stay safe. Based on the report, the lawmakers have no idea where Cayetano got infected and where he had his antigen test.
The current bout of Sen. Cayetano against COVID-19 is his second fight against the virus. In September 2020, at the height of the virus’ spread in the country, the Senator who was then the House Speaker of the House of Representatives contracted COVID-19.
Then, he was infected by COVID-19 through his household staff who was first infected by the virus. Currently, there are still no updates as to his condition and how he contracted the virus. More updates may be posted soon.
