MANILA — A Davao hotel owned by the family of Ellen Adarna is being used as accommodation for persons under investigation (PUI) for possible COVID-19 infection, the actress said.
The former "Home Sweetie Home" star shared with her Instagram followers the development on Thursday, in response to comments that she appeared to carry on with her "happy, happy" activities amid the coronavirus crisis.
Adarna shared a screenshot of a message she received from another follower, who thanked her and her family for working with the local government of Davao City.
The screenshot indicated that Vice Mayor Sebastian Duterte, who is known to be Adarna's former flame, had requested that Queensland Hotel be temporarily used for PUI cases.
"To some haters messaging me about puro lang ako happy, happy and I'm not doing anything to help, here is my reply to you: Sebastian Duterte called me and asked if it was possible to use one of our establishments in Davao, and okay na. Solved na," Adarna wrote.
It was not immediately clear whether the hotel is being used for the entire quarantine period of Davao City's PUI.
As of Friday night, the Philippines has recorded 803 cases of COVID-19, with 9 additional fatalities that has brought the death toll to 54.
