Robredo says she underwent quarantine after COVID-19 exposure

Vice President Leni Robredo on Sunday revealed that she had to undergo quarantine because she interacted with a COVID-19 patient in the past week.

"Na-expose ako last week sa isang COVID-19 patient. Nag-quarantine ako at nag-RT-PCR. Buti naman negative tayo. Bukas balik na tayo sa opisina," Robredo said in her weekend radio program, adding that she was lucky to get a negative result.

(I was exposed last week to a COVID-19 patient. I underwent quarantine and RT-PCR test. It is a good thing I tested negative. Tomorrow, I will be back to work at the office.)

During President Rodrigo Duterte's last State of the Nation Address, Robredo attended virtually after she could not get her second dose of COVID-19 vaccine in time. Authorities required attendees of SONA to be fully vaccinated to make sure chain of transmission of the coronavirus will not occur amid the public event. 

In April, Robredo also underwent quarantine after she was exposed to her bodyguard who was got COVID-19. —KG, GMA News
