Senator Leila De Lima Exempted From COVID-19 Testing

QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – While members of the Philippine Senate and their staff have been scrambling to get tested for COVID-19 due to their interaction with someone who tested positive for it, incarcerated Senator Leila de Lima is exempted.

One Senator, Migz Zubiri recently revealed he had tested positive for the coronavirus while his colleagues have gone into self-quarantine.

De Lima’s exemption was at her own request,  In a handwritten note, she said there was no need for her to get tested because she had been in quarantine for 3 years now — in jail.

Makes sense.  Except in the event that one of her jail guards or police escorts turns out to be a carrier of the dreaded virus!
