The news anchor asked the Abogado how come he and some of his fellow senators have already accessed the testing, despite majority being asymptomatic.
Pimentel defensively answered, “Yung example ko siguro shows na kailangan din magpatest ng mga senador natin, kasi ang iba din sa kanila, nagkakasakit din talaga din.”
He added, “Pagka negative kami, binabash. Pagka positive naman, binabash pa din.
