PRRD undergoes blood test
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.
