Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon Tests Positive For Zoomicron

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.

Leni Robredo Suspends Her Political Campaign!

QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Vice President Leni Robredo is following in the footsteps of former Senator Bongbong Marcos by suspending all of her political campaigning effective immediately.

Marcos earlier temporarily closed his campaign headquarters in deference to the increasing number of new Covid-19 cases. The son of the late great President is himself in isolation after coming in close contact with several of his staff who tested positive for the coronavirus, including his spokesperson Atty. Vic Rodriguez.

But Robredo’s reasons for suspending her campaign are different. The Office of the Vice President (OVP) told The Adobo Chronicles that Robredo is taking a break from personal appearances, media interviews and issuing public statements which have embarrassed her and the OVP.

It will be recalled that Robredo has been criticized and made the laughing stock of netizens after recent statements and hiccups including that in which she said she was given IV, not through her veins but her ”good nerve.” She was also quoted reportedly saying that Filipinos should pray for our (health) frontlines because they are the ones who are in the frontlines. Robredo claims the videos showing her hiccups were spliced.

Previously, Robredo was bashed for her mathematical skills where she said 40 x 4 = 1,600 and her statement that World War II was still in progress in 1947.
