Could Sen. Manny Pacquiao be an asymptomatic COVID-19 carrier?

Pacquiao could be an asymptomatic carrier having been exposed to two positive cases.

  • Sen. Manny Pacquiao said he tested negative for COVID-19.

Senator Manny Pacquaio has disclosed that he and other family members have tested negative of COVID-19 after using the rapid test kit from South Korea.

This after Barangay Dasmarinas issued a letter putting his whole household under home quarantine due to the circulating video that he hosted a party at his residence attended by Sen. Koko Pimentel who was later confirmed as positive for the disease.

But a netizen posted a theory pointing to Pacman being a possible asymptomatic carrier.

In a tweet Sunday, March 29 by twitter user @SyLicoNgaAko showed a picture of Pacman at a turnover ceremony of Chinese businessman Jack Ma’s face mask donation for the AFP, PNP, MMDA, DOH, and RITM at Camp Crame.

Together with Pacquiao in the turnover ceremony were AFP chief Gen. Felimon Santos and MMDA Jojo Garcia who both tested positive from COVID-19 as reported on March 27 and 28.

Defense Sec. Delfin Lorenzana confirmed the report that Gen. Santors is COVID-19 positive.

Santos called on all who had close physical contact with him since March 13 to also go on self-quarantine, and those who met him from March 9 to 12, to take precautions and seek medical advice.

Santos and Pacquio were seen shaking hands on March 17 at the turnover ceremony.

RITM has already urged the senator to take a confirmatory test but Pacman rejected the offer saying he will do it once he exhibits symptoms.
