Bacoor Mayor Lani Mercado wrote a lengthy post sharing the hardships of caring for COVID-19 patients like her husband Senator Bong Revilla.
On Facebook, Lani wrote how difficult it is for them to show support and care for Bong after he tested positive for COVID-19.
“Papaano mo maipapakita ang pag-aasikaso at pag-aalaga sa iyong asawa na positive sa COVID-19? Hindi mo masamahan. Hindi mo mayakap. Hindi mo mahagkan dahilan sa kailangang mag-14 day isolation muli.”
Despite it all, the mayor said she still has to juggle her responsibilities to her constituents and her children.
“Sabay nito’y hindi nakakaligtaan ng inyong lingkod ang mga responsibilidad bilang ina ng lungsod at bilang ina ng aking mga anak,” Lani wrote.
She went on to ask her followers and supporters to extend their prayers for her husband. She lamented how COVID-19 does not spare anyone. In the end, she also urged her husband to stay strong.
“Isama ninyo po sana sa inyong panalangin ang paggaling ni Sen. Bong Revilla at lahat ng may COVID-19. No one is spared, may katungkulan man sa bansa o wala. Patuloy akong magiging malakas at malusog para sa ating pamilya at bayan, Papa. Palakas ka,” Lani wrote.
The senator earlier shared the unfortunate news that he is COVID-19 positive on his Facebook page. He wrote, “”Nakakalungkot po na balita – I am COVID-19 positive. Pero huwag po kayo mag-alala, I am okay. Sila Lani at ang mga bata ay okay rin at sa awa ng Diyos, ay negative naman lahat.”
