Senator Sonny Angara has finally been released from the hospital after he tested negative for the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The senator shared the good news on Instagram last April 6, saying that he has now recovered from the virus as well as pneumonia after his more than one-week stay in the hospital.
“After several days in the emergency room and the COVID wing, my doctors finally sent me home today -- negative for the virus and pneumonia free,” he wrote in the caption.
“Big, big thanks to my doctors and nurses for taking care of me, and to my family, loved ones, friends for all the prayers, letters, and food that you sent. Am truly grateful for the gift of life and even more so now for those at the front lines who safeguard our lives and protect our society,” he added.
Senator Sonny then paid tribute to all the frontliners who have been fighting the spread of the virus.
“I met nurses and doctors who don't go home anymore, some even doing double duty in other hospitals. They truly, truly are REAL HEROES. I will be at home with my son when he celebrates his birthday this weekend, but many of our health workers will not make it home as a measure of protection for their families,” he said.
