Manila Mayor Isko Moreno has reported loss of smell and taste, days after testing positive for COVID-19, according to his medical bulletin on Friday.
“Our Honorable Mayor, on his 5th hospital day, has reported loss of smell and taste which is part of the covid-19 disease spectrum,” said Dr. Grace Padilla, director of Sta. Ana Hospital, in the medical bulletin.
Padilla said Moreno’s appetite remained good, and he has minimal body pain, at Grade 2/10. He has not taken any pain relievers for the entire day.
“He is comfortable and well rested,” the bulletin said.
“His vital signs continuously remain stable,” it added, after Moreno’s X-ray result revealed no significant chest findings following repeat blood tests and chest X-ray.
Moreno was taken to the Sta. Ana Hospital on Sunday night after testing positive for COVID-19.
The mayor said he had cough, cold, and body pains. –Jamil Santos/KBK, GMA News
