Senator Sonny Angara says he is recovering from COVID-19, after announcing he was postive with the virus on Thursday, March 26.

On Monday night, March 30, Angara posted a message on Facebook:  “Recovering thanks to your prayers and some good medical attention.” 

Over the weekend, Angara’s wife, Tootsy Echauz-Angara, thanked doctors and neighbors who have been kind to the family, in a post on Instagram. She also expressed hurt for being discriminated against by service providers.

“As soon as the news came out... some have refused to deliver essentials to our home .. a neighbor wished to have us out of our neighborhood... and I don’t blame them ... To our other neighbors who showed us acts of kindness, thank you.

“I had to reach out and ask for help.. our entire household quarantined for 14 days...family and friends sent us drinking water when we ran out, they sent us oxygen too...the two  most essential things in life.. water and air. Some sent us fruits, vegetables, medical supplies, cleaning aids, vitamins for our household.  The doctors.. the dear doctors who have been patiently answering my messages, my inquiries and questions. I cannot thank you enough. I am forever grateful for all the beautiful and kind souls God blessed us with.”

Tootsy’s post also talked about how much she misses her husband.

“I miss my Sonny boy. The last time we held hands was during the Ama Namin as we watched the online mass as a family two weeks ago. It was sad I couldn’t give him a big tight hug to say it was going to be okay when he got his results. It pains me that I am not able to take care of him the way he took care of me when I was sick ...I feel sad that we can’t be there for him and he has to go through this physically alone. It’s lonely for all of us but we know it’s just a matter of time."

She admitted getting emotional at times.

“I do have moments of weakness when I break down and cry ...because I miss him a lot and don’t know what I can do to help. But I choose to be strong and realized that prayer calmed my heart and made me believe Sonny was going to be okay. I have faith God will help him get through this. When I feel sad or scared I pray the rosary by myself of with other ladies on zoom or listen to the online masses. 

“To all our dear friends, may I ask for your prayers for Sonny’s complete recovery and please keep yourselves safe,” she said.
