Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas chairman Sen. Sonny Angara has now recovered from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) disease, as announced on Monday.
The second generation politician tested positive for COVID-19 last March 26, becoming the third senator next to Migs Zubiri and Koko Pimentel to get infected by the virus.
“After several days in the emergency room and the COVID wing my doctors finally sent me home today — negative for the virus and pneumonia free,” Angara wrote on his official Facebook page.
Angara expressed gratitude to the doctors and nurses, as well as to those who helped along the way.
“Big big thanks to my doctors and nurses for taking care of me and to my family, loved ones, friends for all the prayers, letters, and food that you sent,” the 47-year-old politician wrote.
The chair of both the Finance and Youth committees of the Senate also lauded the efforts of the people who have been in the front lines of the combat against the virus, calling them real heroes.
“I am truly grateful for the gift of life and even more so now for those at the front lines who safeguard our lives and protect our society,” wrote Angara, who’s in his second term as a senator.
“I met nurses and doctors who don’t go home anymore, some even doing double duty in other hospitals. They truly, truly are real heroes.”
