THE CITY OF DAVAO – Members of the Duterte family “reunited” via video chat on Monday evening to wish the speedy recovery of Davao First District representative Paolo “Pulong” Duterte, who was hospitalized due to coronavirus disease 2019 ( Covid-19).
In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Mayor Sara Z. Duterte shared a screenshot of the video chat between herself, her husband Mans Carpio, her brothers Paolo and Deputy Mayor Sebastian Duterte, and their mother Elizabeth Zimmerman.
“When someone is positive in our family, we make video calls to say goodbye to the sick person because we don’t know what’s going to happen because Covid-19 is fatal,” Mayor Sara said in his message.
On Monday, September 27, Representative Paolo confirmed that he had contracted the virus and that he is currently in hospital isolation.
It can be recalled that Deputy Mayor Sebastian also tested positive for the virus in July.
Mayo Sara said the whole family prayed for Paolo’s speedy recovery.
“We prayed last night that Covid would not harvest Cong, Pulong and if the Lord took him then he would pray for us if he enters the kingdom of God,” Duterte said jokingly.
She also reminded the public to be careful and always wear a face mask to protect themselves from the virus. (ANP)
