Malacañang spokesman Harry Roque said he would be discharged on Thursday from the Philippine General Hospital after his second bout with COVID-19. 
 
Roque said his press briefing was broadcast "for the last time in PGH" on Thursday. 

"Ako po ay idi-discharge na after 6 days dito sa PGH," he said.

(I will be discharged today after 6 days here at PGH.) 

He went on to thank PGH Director Gap Legaspi, at least 10 doctors, and several nurses. 

Roque has denied using his influence to get a slot at the state-run facility, as many hospitals around Metro Manila remained at full capacity amid a surge in COVID-19 infections.
