Abra Rep. Joseph Sto. Niño Bernos has tested positive for COVID-19.
Bernos said he received the result of the RT-PCR test on Wednesday, March 24 and “I regretfully inform the public that I have tested positive for COVID-19.”
“Currently, I am asymptomatic and undergoing home quarantine, as advised by my doctors. It is unfortunate that despite following strict protocols, I have contracted the virus due to numerous unavoidable commitments,” he said.
Bernos asked those who have been in contact with him for the last two days to take precautionary measures, observe possible symptoms, and undergo testing.
“I ask for your prayers not only for me but for our entire country facing this pandemic, that the virus may be eradicated soon so that we can return to be in the service of our fellow Filipinos,” he added.
