Lead doctor: Marcos is nearing “full recovery”
After testing positive for Covid-19 on Friday, President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. is nearing “full recovery,” according to his attending physician.
Dr. Samuel Zacate stated that although Marcos is currently in home isolation, he is not feeling feverish or unwell.
He claimed that Marcos had recovered from his cough as well.
Additional medication, according to Zacate, was reportedly given to the President to treat “very slight nose stuffiness and nasal itching.” It was recommended to keep taking other medications.
He stated that Marcos’ medical findings from earlier in the day show that “all of his vital indicators are within normal ranges and exemplary.”
“He [Marcos] hasn’t had any new symptoms or indicators,’ He still doesn’t have any obvious inflammation in his throat, and his breathing isn’t compromised,” Zacate added.
According to Zacate’s clinical assessment, Marcos “is on his path to a total recovery.”
A completely immunized person with good health and a history of tremendous fortitude despite all obstacles, like our President Ferdinand Marcos Jr., is predicted to recover quickly, he continued.
The Office of the Press Secretary (OPS) revealed in a separate statement that Marcos will preside over his second Cabinet meeting via teleconference on Tuesday.
Tomorrow, July 12, the second Cabinet meeting of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. PBBM will attend the meeting through teleconferencing because he is still required to remain in isolation, according to the OPS.
Trixie Cruz-Angeles, the press secretary, revealed on Friday that Marcos’ anti-gen test resulted in a positive result for Covid-19.
Marcos’ Covid-19 positivity was later confirmed with an RT-PCR test, which stands for reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction.
The US Embassy’s planned Friday celebration of the 246th anniversary of the US Independence was missed by Marcos.
He did, however, participate via teleconference at the Leagues of Governors and Mayors meeting to talk about the push for the Covid-19 booster deployment and the return of full face-to-face sessions.
Marcos stressed the necessity of a booster campaign launch at the meeting in order to securely resume in-person classes and properly restart the economy.
He stated that he wanted local government agencies to organize a sizable vaccination campaign for booster shots aimed at schoolchildren so they may return to class in August or September without fear.
Marcos’ Covid-19 test result is now positive for the second time.
He reportedly contracted the disease for the first time in March 2020 after arriving home from a trip to Spain.
