Interior Secretary Eduardo Año has been discharged from the hospital but will continue to recuperate at home.

In a text message to the Philippine News Agency (PNA) on Tuesday night, Año said he was discharged from the hospital on August 30, two weeks after he tested positive anew for the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) on August 16.

He said he is on self-quarantine while waiting for the results of his swab test, which will determine whether he is already free of Covid-19.

“Hindi na ako nag-antibiotics kasi virus ito. Magte-take ka lang ng antibiotics kung namaga yung lungs mo o tinamaan ‘yung lungs or kidneys or (internal) organs mo (I did not take antibiotics because this is a virus. You will only take antibiotics if your lungs or your kidneys or internal organs have been affected),” Año said.

Except for some coughing, he said he was feeling fine.

“Pero pag malakas lungs mo, yan ang laban mo diyan (But if you have strong lungs, you have a good chance of recovery). In my case, malakas ang lungs ko, so ako di nahirapan sa breathing (I have strong lungs so I did not have difficulty breathing),” he added.

Año first tested positive for Covid-19 on March 31. He recovered and tested negative for the virus on April 8. (PNA)
