Bangsamoro health minister, wife recover from Covid-19


Bangsamoro government Health Minister Saffrullah Dipatuan, along with his wife, has recovered from coronavirus disease.

In a statement, Dipatuan said he and his wife stayed in the hospital for the past two weeks for isolation and treatment after they tested positive for Covid-19.

“We have already surpassed that challenge and are now fully recovered,” he said.

After an employee of the Office of the Chief Minister was tested positive for Covid-19 late last month, the other staff also underwent RT-PCR testing and those who tested positive have been isolated.

The Bangsamoro Government Center in Cotabato City was also closed for two weeks for disinfection.
