After the incident of inviting a Senator party infected with COVID-19 Pimentel Koko, Manny Pacquiao conducted the isolation of the family and tests.
Pacquiao and his family received a letter requesting isolation after a recent exposure to a COVID-19 infected person. Recently, however, Manny Pacquiao reassured people with the latest test results.
Manny Pacquiao declared: “My fellow countrymen, I want to make it clear that even before I received a letter from the village head of Dasmarinas, Mrs. Rossana Hwang, I began to isolate myself at home.
Please do not worry. I received a quick test kit from my friends in Korea. These are tools that have been licensed for use in Korea. They gave a negative result. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has not approved them, but these are things that have been used for testing in Korea”.
In addition, Senator Manny Pacquiao also expressed his determination to fight the epidemic frontline: “The rapidly increasing number of infected people worldwide has led to facilities to test kits. I was encouraged to come back for a test at RITM (Tropical Medicine Research Institute), but I wanted to let everyone know that I didn’t feel any symptoms come on”.
It would be a completely different conversation when he felt something was strange in his body. He was willing to test it for the sake of his family and his country, but he would follow the procedure, he believed that there were more people who need to be tested than he was, Pacquiao shared.
The outbreak of coronavirus has killed more than 30,000 people worldwide but Pacquiao earlier stated that he was not afraid to die in the fight against the pandemic: “You have to lead and let people see that you are with you them, “Pacquiao said. “You can’t hide for fear of dying. I grew up from poverty. I know what they (the poor) feel.”
