Harry Roque rush in hospital for COVID-19 treatment

On Saturday, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque was rushed to the hospital after contracting the coronavirus disease (Covid-19).

In a press statement sent to Palace reporters, Roque confirmed the news. “I've been admitted to a hospital for Covid therapy. This means that Covid-19 is now more transmissible, and we must take extra precautions,” he said.

Roque did not say where he is hospitalized or when his most recent Covid-19 test was. He revealed on March 15 that he had tested positive for Covid-19 and that he was asymptomatic.

Roque announced on March 25 that he had recovered from the disease after completing his quarantine and receiving a negative test result.

To avoid contracting the virus again, he said he would restrict his visits to public places, including hospitals.

In the two weeks leading up to his first positive Covid-19 examination, Roque visited at least seven hospitals.

He requested prayers for anyone who has been infected with the coronavirus. “I am requesting your heartfelt prayers for all those affected by Covid-19 in the United States and around the world. “May God continue to bless and protect us all,” he said.

Despite his health, Roque stated that the quarantine status of the National Capital Region Plus (NCR Plus) will be announced after April 11.

On Saturday afternoon, the latest quarantine classification in NCR Plus is expected to be revealed.

Due to the rising number of Covid-19 infections, Metro Manila, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, and Rizal, or the so-called "NCR Plus," are under the most stringent enhanced group quarantine until April 11.
