Her son Gino told INQUIRER.net today, April 16, that his mom has tested negative twice for coronavirus, but is still fighting to improve her health after she first had pneumonia symptoms.
“She’s getting better but she still isn’t at 100%. She feels like it might take a long while for her to get there,” he said.
After finding out her husband’s coronavirus test results last March 30, Gina submitted to voluntary confinement. She had a cough and a sore throat before being hospitalized.
