Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr, who recently tested positive for coronavirus was rushed to the hospital on August 18 after he developed pneumonia.
In a Facebook post of his wife, Bacoor Mayor Lani Mercado shared:
“Father God, please help my husband. He is being rushed to the hospital. His latest X-ray shows that he has developed pneumonia and isolation in a regular facility is no longer ideal,” Lani wrote.
Revilla tested positive for COVID-19 last August 9 after a household member and his staff contracted the virus.
In a social media post, Revilla asked for prayers for their family for all the challenges that they are going through.
“Dasal, I need prayers sa inyong lahat po. Mga kababayan, ipagdasal nyo po kami ng aming pamilya. Andaming mga pagsubok na pinagdadaanan. Kamamatay lang po ng tatay ko. Eto naman. Harinawa, I’m okay. “
Revilla is the fourth senator that contracted the disease following Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri and Senators Sonny Angara and Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel Jr., who have all recovered.
