Lanao del Sur Governor Mamintal “Bombit” A. Adiong Jr. and 2nd District Board Member Allan Panolong both tested positive for coronavirus disease.
Panolong confirmed this on his Facebook page Monday, September 14.
He said that he and Adiong have both exposure to a person who was tested positive for Covid-19.
“Today is my lowest point in life as I tested positive for Covid-19 through RPT-CR in a governmental hospital. Indeed, Covid-19 is real,” he said.
While he tested positive for Covid-1, the politician said he has not exhibited any severe symptoms.
He prayed that he is on his way to speed recovery.
“Unfortunately, our beloved Governor, Mamintal “Bombit” A. Adiong Jr., whom I was with him in his several meetings was exposed to the same person who turned positive for coronavirus. He, however, has the same condition with me. Insha Allah, he is doing fine,” Panolong said.
He urged everyone to remain calm and to be responsible with their actions.
“We can win this battle if we work together and we cooperate with government protocols and procedures,” he added.
