Justine told INQUIRER.net in a text message that Renee died at Bernardino General Hospital at around 6 a.m. Renee tested negative for COVID-19 using an antigen test.

She did not mention the cause of the death of her father, but she said that they were struggling to find a vacant hospital room for Alon.

“Grabe po, 40+ na hospital po ang pinuntahan namin at maski isa po wala man lang po nagbigay ng first aid, dextrose at yung oxygen tank po,” she recalled. “Wala po nag admit po na ospital sa amin.”

(It’s so bad, we had been to 40+ hospitals, no one gave him first aid, IV dextrose and oxygen tank. No hospital admitted him.)

Renee was about to celebrate his 62nd birthday on September 24, according to Justine.
