Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III has tested positive for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the lawmaker confirmed in a statement.

"Since the last day of session March 11, 2020 I had already tried my best to limit my movement. I will call (to the best of my ability) those I remember meeting during those crucial days so that I can inform them of my test result," he added.

“I was informed late last night March 24, 2020 that I have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. The swab was taken last Friday, March 20, 2020,” he said.

Pimentel is the second senator to test positive for COVID-19 after Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri.
