Hindi umano makadadalo sa inagurasyon ni President-elect Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos, Jr. si dating Senate President at ngayon ay magiging chief presidential legal counsel na si dating Senador Juan Ponce Enrile, matapos umanong maospital dahil sa Covid-19.
Ibinahagi ni Enrile ang kalagayan sa kaniyang personal na Facebook account, Lunes, Hunyo 27.
“To all my FB friends, critics, and enemies: Please bear with me. I am in the hospital. To my critics and enemies: Do not clap with glee. I am not going to die yet. Far from it. God gave me very good doctors,” mensahe ni Enrile para sa lahat.
Kahit na may Covid-19 siya ay wala naman daw siyang iniindang sakit sa kaniyang katawan.
“He wants me, I humbly think, to stay here for sometime more to engage you to help clear and clean up, if possible, your distorted narrative of our history for the benefit of the uninformed innocent people. Since three (3) days ago after I entered Makati Med. When I was diagnosed ‘positive’ for COVID virus. I never had any discomfort. No chills. No fever. No headache. No malaise. My body temperature ranges from 36* to 36.8*.”
“My body oxygen ranges from 96 to 99. All my physical vital signs and blood chemistry readings were normal. The only thing I had was a dry intermittent, sometimes intense, coughing. The CT-SCAN showed that I had mild COVID-19 pneumonia.”
“I informed the Executive Secretary the Hon. Victor E. Rodriguez, about it and requested him to inform the President and ask him that I be excused from attending the oath-taking ceremonies of the President and the Vice President on June 30th at noon because I will still be in the hospital by then to complete the anti-viral regimen prescribed by my doctors,” dagdag pa ni Enrile.
