Malacañang on Saturday said President Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. has "recovered" and is no longer showing symptoms of coronavirus disease or Covid-19.

In a statement, the Presidential Communication Office said Marcos had already completed his mandatory five-day isolation.

"President Marcos is progressing well in his recovery. Today, on the fifth day of home isolation, the President is now free from cough, nasal congestion, and fever for more than 24 hours," PCO wrote in a social media post.

The PCO said medical professionals closely monitored Marcos during his entire home isolation period.

Sunday, still rest day

"All other medical findings were unremarkable. Consequently, the President's final diagnosis is Covid-19, recovered," it added.

Marcos is set to complete his full isolation period by Sunday.

As a safety precaution after his isolation period, Marcos was advised by his doctor to continue wearing face masks for at least ten days throughout his public engagements.

According to the Department of Health's revised guidelines, symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals infected with Covid-19 must undergo a five-day home isolation. It also mandates patients to wear a well-fitted face mask for ten days after undergoing isolation.

   The isolation may be shortened for those who are "fever-free for at least 24 hours without using antipyretics such as paracetamol and with improvement of respiratory systems."
