Manny Pacquiao thankful after PCR-based test confirms he is COVID-19 free

        View this post on Instagram                   Enjoying all the extra family time in quarantine. Love these people more than anything! A post shared by Manny Pacquiao (@mannypacquiao) on Apr 19, 2020 at 5:56pm PDT Eight-division boxing world champion and incumbent Philippine Senator Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao has been cleared of COVID-19 infections, as confirmed by a PCR-based test, he said in a statement, Monday. Pacquiao and his family were instructed to go under home quarantine by Dasmariñas Village officials led Barangay Captain Rossana Hwang back in late-March after Pacquiao was said to have hosted a ‘party’ that included Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel, who had tested positive for COVID-19 earlier that week. In a response, Pacquiao clarified that it was not a ‘party’ but rather a political meeting that took place weeks before Pimentel tested positive. "This event happened on March 4, 2020. I am sure our Dasmariñas Village guards have records of this if only proper verification was made. Let me also emphasize that it was not 'partying' as stated in your letter. It was a political meeting. The word 'partying' casts me as someone insensitive to the current crisis of the nation," Pacquiao said. Pacquiao added that prior to the letter from Hwang, he had already decided to put himself under home-quarantine after a Special Senate Session back in March 23. He also said that he tested negative using rapid testing kits from South Korea. Upon the advise of Dr. Rontgene Solante, head of the Infectirous Disease Department of the San Lazaro Hospital, Pacquiao also took the PCR-based test, which also came back negative. "Nagpapasalamat po tayo kay Lord dahil patuloy tayong prinoproteksyonan,” Pacquiao stated. “Nagpapasalamat din ako sa DOH at sa mga taong sumama sa pagdarasal upang malampasan natin ang pagsubok na ito.” Prior to undergoing home quarantine, Pacquiao was quite active in the battle agaisnt COVID-19, helping donate facemasks and setting up free transport for frontliners, as well as partnering with the Jack Ma Foundation to donate test kits.  “Huwag po kayong mag-alala at hindi ko sasayangin ang inyong pagmamahal. Susuklian ko po ito ng mas masigasig pang paninilbihan sa bayan," Pacquiao continued......»»
