Meanwhile, there was some political activity at Vice President Leni Robredo’s camp after she stressed that she was not hiding anything, and that she was still discerning whether or not to run for President in the 2022 elections. She also said that she still wanted to talk with other opposition presidential contenders – Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso and Senatro Manny Pacquiao. Robredo also bared that she was open to going on another face-off with former senator Bongbong Marcos.

Also, it was reported that Manila Archbishop Jose Cardinal Advincula tested positive for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
