Sun.Star Davao - - FRONT PAGE -

Manila - Pres­i­dent Ro­drigo Duterte yes­ter­day re­vealed that he went to a hospi­tal and un­der­went a blood test be­fore grac­ing an event ar­ranged by the De­part­ment of La­bor and Em­ploy­ment (DOLE) in Pasay City.

Duterte was de­liv­er­ing his key­note speech dur­ing DOLE’s 85th found­ing an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tion when he changed the sub­ject and talked about his hospi­tal visit prior to his at­ten­dance to the event.

He re­vealed that he un­der­went a blood test, a pro­ce­dure taken to eval­u­ate the over­all health sta­tus of an in­di­vid­ual and de­tect pos­si­ble dis­or­ders.

“Ako rin, gal­ing sa os­pi­tal. Ki­n­unan ako ng dugo. Iyang me­dia, mag­tatanong na na­man kung anong sakit ko (I came from the hospi­tal. They took some blood from me. The me­dia will surely ask about my ail­ment),” Duterte, who was seen rub­bing the front of his el­bow cov­ered with cot­ton, said.

“Well, I’ll give you an idea. Tang­galin ko na lang ‘to. Ayan, may dugo kaunti. Pero ‘pag tu­sok nila sa sy­ringe, kuku­nan akong dugo, walang lal­abas, puro hangin (I’ll re­move the cot­ton. There’s a lit­tle blood. They used sy­ringe to take my blood but they get noth­ing but air),” he added.

The Pres­i­dent did not elab­o­rate on his visit to the hospi­tal.
