    Marcos' spokesman and lawyer Victor Rodriguez added that his condition is currently improving.

    “GUMAGANDA na ang kondisyong pangkalusugan ni dating Sen. Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos, Jr. makaraang ihayag sa resulta ng clinical test na isinagawa ng Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) na siya’y positibo sa CoVid19,” Rodriguez said in a statement on Facebook.

    They received COVID-19 result from the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine on March 28.

    The son of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos took the test after coming from Spain “feeling unwell."

    “Pagkagaling ko sa Europa, tumungo agad ako noong sumunod na araw, Marso 14, 2020 sa isang ospital upang magpasuri dahil sa medyo may pananakit ang aking dibdib at upang matiyak ang aking kondisyong pangkalusugan dahil sa mga panahong ‘yon ay lumalaganap na ang corona virus,” Marcos said.

    Marcos said that he has been staying at home since he arrived from the European country.

    “Pero umuwi na lang ako kasi sobrang dami ng pasyente noon sa pinuntahan kong ospital kaya hindi na ako nagpumilit na magpaasikaso upang mabigyan ng tamang atensiyon ang mga pasyenteng nauna sa akin... na maaaring mas masama ang pakiramdam,” he said.

    "Ang tanging pagkakataon na lumabas si dating Senador Marcos mula noon sa kanyang silid ay noon lang Marso 22, 2020 para magtungo sa emergency room ng parehong ospital makaraang siya’y nakaranas ng hirap sa paghinga, kung saan isinagawa ang ‘CoVid19’ test sa kanya at pinayuhang mag-self quarantine,” Rodriguez added.

    As of Tuesday, the total number of infected individuals in the Philippines rose to 2084. Death toll now at 88 while recovered patients at 49.
