MANILA - Sen. Sonny Angara is back with his family after recovering from the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
In an Instagram post on Friday, the 47-year-old senator is seen enjoying his family's company for the first time in weeks.
"First time to hug/kiss these guys after over 30+ days incl hospital stay and self quarantine in the den," he said.
His wife, Tootsy, earlier said that their family and household staff also had to undergo a 14-day quarantine after they were exposed to the senator who was a carrier of the virus.
The senator earlier donated blood plasma for a coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patient after he recuperated from the disease.
In the absence of a COVID-19 cure, some hospitals have been using convalescent plasma therapy - or the transfer of blood from those who recovered to those who are still battling the disease - to see if survivors' antibodies can help patients overcome the virus.
