DIOCESE of San Carlos Bishop Gerardo Alminaza was again tested positive for coronavirus disease (Covid-19).

Fr. Marjun Almario, chancellor of the diocese, said the 62-year-old bishop is asymptomatic and now under quarantine.

“We encourage those persons that he may have interacted with these past few days to observe home quarantine and cooperate with the authorities,” he said.

Almario also asked the faithfuls to pray for Alminaza’s fast recovery as well as for other Covid-19 patients.

“Let us continue as well to pray for those in the frontlines who are constantly taking risks to care for us,” the priest said.

This is already the second time that the prelate contracted the disease.

The first time was in June where he was hospitalized for six days and underwent a 14-day quarantine. (TDE)
