Netizens weigh in on conflicting statements from Marcos camp on Bongbong’s COVID-19 test

Netizens slammed the supposed VIP treatment of the Marcoses for COVID-19 testing.

  • Bongbong Marcos and his wife issued different statements about his health.

Netizens were left confused about the true state of Bongbong Marcos’ health after their camp issued two different official statements.

Marcos’ wife Atty. Liza first came up with a statement saying the former Senator is now in better condition belying circulating reports that the former Senator had already passed away.

“Contrary to the rumors circulating, my husband is well. His lungs did not collapse. He was not airlifted in Manong Chavit’s plane to get treatment in Singapore. He is not dying nor is he dead,” she said in a statement.

BBM’s wife also said their whole family had been tested for COVID-19 yesterday and it came out negative.

“Yesterday, we had ourselves and our entire staff tested for COVID-19. Fortunately, we all tested NEGATIVE,” she added.

That statement from Atty. Liza drew criticism from netizens who asked how were they able to get the test results in just 24 hours.

Kapamilya journalist Tony Velasquez sarcastically said the hospital that processed the Marcos’ test should be given a commendation by the World Health Organization (WHO) for the rapid result.

“Aling ospital kaya ang nakapag process ng swabs ni BBM at ng kaniyang buong pamilya at staff sa loob ng 24 oras?? Aba’y kay husay nire, bigyan dapat ito ng commendation ng DOH at WHO. Sabay pa imbestiga na rin kung hindi ba ito isa na naman panlilinlang.”

Actor Ping Medina, on the other hand, blasted the VIP treatment the Marcos family got after getting their test results in just 24 hours.

One day to get the test results. Buong pamilya at staff pa! Lakas ng amo ni Dutz #neveragain”

Netizen and dermatologist @ayabellsmd also slammed the supposed VIP treatment accorded to the Marcos family after they’ve got the test results in just 24 hours.

“In today’s story of VIPs shitting themselves- BBM’s wife telling us that their family + whole staff were tested and got their results within 24 hours. The audacity!!! Ang dali lang para sa inyo magpa-test. Yung mga pasyente, namamatay bago nila makuha resulta nila”

Former PCOO secretary Manolo Quezon also pointed out the VIP treatment that the Marcoses got.

“Atty. Mrs. Marcos shares reassuring tydings with her husband’s supporters and reassures a concerned nation that she, her husband’s staff, etc. have all undergone #COVID19PH testing, with negative results. (Public feelings about testing and VIPs of course does not apply here.)”

After his wife’s statement, Bongbong himself came out with a statement saying he’s still waiting for the result of his COVID-19 test.

“A few days ago I was feeling a little under the weather and as a result went to get checked. We are still waiting for the results,” Bongbong said.

“I am doing okay and contrary to popular belief, I am home on self-quarantine… Fortunately, I feel much better and am getting stronger by the day,” he added.

With their conflicting statements, netizens chided the Marcoses for not getting their act together. Netizens even laughed at the glaring contradictions in the statements.
