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.
