DAVAO CITY — Mayor Sara Z. Duterte took to social media Tuesday to thank the people who wished for her fast recovery after she contracted the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) on Saturday (October 10).
“Even though I am in quarantine, I can read all your messages and prayers for my speedy recovery,” she said on her official Facebook page.
A statement from her office said that the presidential daughter has mild symptoms and is currently in isolation.
“These messages strengthen me, not only physically but also emotionally, especially that it is not easy to be separated from [my] family because of quarantine,” Duterte added.
Apart from wishing for her recovery, she also thanked them for their trust and support.
“Your love is such a wonderful inspiration. Thank you so much for your trust and support and let us not forget the love for our country Philippines,” Duterte added.
Meanwhile, the city mayor’s office advised those who had close contact with Duterte in the last 14 days to self-monitor for symptoms and undertake a reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test five to seven days after exposure to her. Philippine News Agency
