TALISAY City Mayor Gerald Anthony "Samsam" Gullas Jr. is officially back to work.
He made this announcement on his Facebook page on Thursday, Feb. 25, 2021.
"Even though it’s a holiday, it’s officially my first day back at work today since I got hit by Covid-19. I'd like to thank everyone for the prayers for me to get back to work," he said.
Feb. 25 is the anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution.
Gullas thanked those who prayed for his recovery and Talisay City Vice Mayor Alan Bucao for his dedication at work as acting mayor while he was isolated.
He said he is still concerned about possibly infecting his family when he returns home even though he has already recovered from the disease.
"My doctor told me that according to studies, 96 percent of Covid-19 patients are no longer infectious after 10 days, 98 percent are no longer infectious after the 14th day, 99 percent after the 21st, and 100% after the 28th," he said.
Gullas is reported to have no more symptoms of Covid-19. However, Gullas opted to return home after the 21st day since his isolation for his child's safety.
