MAGALANG Mayor Romulo Pecson has recovered from coronavirus disease (Covid-19) and is set to complete a home quarantine period.
The mayor thanked his townmates from their prayers and morale support.
Pecson also thanked Governor Dennis Pineda and Vice Governor Lilia Pineda for helping him in his hospitalization.
"Ipinaaabot ko po ang lubos na pasasalamat sa ating butihing gobernador, Governor Dennis ‘Delta’ Pineda at Vice Governor Lilia ‘Nanay’ Pineda sa kanilang tulong at malakasakit sa aking paggaling at sa aking mga kabalen sa inyong panalangin habang tayo ay nagpapagaling pa," he said.
The mayor was confined at the Greencity Medical Center in the City of San Fernando last week after experiencing Covid-19 symptoms. He later tested positive for the virus and received help from the governor.
Pecson was released from the hospital on Monday, April 12.
"Matapos pong magpositibo sa Covid-19, nananatili pong maayos ang ating kalagayan kaya't agad ding nirekomenda ng doktor ang ating paglabas sa hospital ngayong araw, ika 12 ng Abril. Ako po ay manananatiling naka-home quarantine base sa rekomendasyon ng aking doktor," he added.
Pecson also appealed to the people of Magalang to pray for the recovery of other patients from the virus and pandemic.
"Ipagpatuloy po nating ipagdasal sa Panginoon ang mabilis na paggaling ng ating mga kababayan na malampasan ang krisis dulot ng pandemya," he said.
