ANOTHER congressman has announced late Tuesday night being tested positive for coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19).

On his Facebook account, Navotas City Rep. John Rey Tiangco said his antigen test showed he was positive for COVID-19, prompting him to take RT-PCR test of which the result was still unknown as of press time Wednesday.

“Para po sa inyong kaalaman, base sa antigen test ko ngayong gabi (Tuesday), ako ay nag-positibo sa COVID-19. Bukas po ay magpapa RT-PCR test po ako,” Tiangco said.

“Sa akin pong mga nakasalamuha, mainam po kung kayo ay magpa-swab test para na rin sa inyong kaligtasan. Libre po ang RT-PCR swab test natin kaya makipag-ugnay lamang po sa inyong barangay o health center,” Tiangco said.
