Senator Sonny Angara has checked into a hospital over the weekend, a member of his staff told reporters on Wednesday.
Angara is said to be very okay and on his way to recovery.
He has a mild cough and his family wants him to receive proper medical attention.
The senator last week revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19.
The senator is isolated in his hospital room as no one is allowed to accompany him.
On Monday night, Angara posted a picture of his bearded face on Instagram.
He said he was getting well.
“Recovering thanks to your prayers and some good medical attention,” the 47-year-old lawmaker said.
Senators Juan Miguel Zubiri and Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel also tested positive for COVID-19. -NB, GMA News
