After several days in the ER and the covid wing my doctors finally sent me home today-- negative for the virus and pneumonia free. 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. 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 bday this weekend but many of our health workers will not make it home as a measure of protection for their families. Salamat po and godbless everyone. Hope everyone is safe at home ????????????????????????????#covid19 #coronavirus #flattenthecurve #

"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," he added.

The senator, who learned of his laboratory test result on March 26, shared how he personally saw the sacrifices and dedication of frontline health workers.

"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," Angara said.

"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 added.

The senator did not mention the name of the hospital where he has been confined since last weekend.

His colleagues, Senators Juan Miguel Zubiri and Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel, also got infected with the virus last month.

Their respective camps said they were both recovering but have not issued official statements yet on whether they already tested negative for COVID-19 too. --KBK, GMA News
