MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon tweeted that she had a fever, just hours after she presided over a preliminary hearing on two disqualification petitions filed against former Senator and presidential aspirant Bongbong Marcos.
This prompted the feisty Commissioner (a.k.a. shunga) to submit to a Covid-19 RT-PCR test.
The test came back positive!
Comelec Spokesperson James Jimenez told The Adobo Chronicles that Guanzon may have been exposed to the zoomicron virus after she had a fit when Marcos failed to appear — not even by zoom — at Friday’s hearing.
Guanzon demanded that Marcos’ counsel produce a medical certificate to justify the former Senators’ no-show.
It wasn’t clear whether Guanzon will be able to resume the disqualification hearing on Monday due to her condition. She will then have to produce a medical certificate if the hearing must be postponed.
What goes around comes around. Even zoomicron.
