She also vowed not to repeat the same mistakes again.
“Naka-ilang eleksyon na rin naman pong hindi naulit,” she said.
Yesterday, Pimentel has gone viral on social media after he announced that he was informed to be positive for CoViD-19 while accompanying his pregnant wife in Makati Medical Center.
The hospital accused Pimentel of breaching the strict infection and containment of their delivery room complex.
Makati Med said that some doctors and nurses already voluntarily quarantined themselves after their possible contact with Pimentel.
Netizens urged Pimentel to resign for being irresponsible and a bad role model to the people.
However, the camp of Pimentel denied that the Senator was aware of his CoViD-19 status before going to the hospital.
According to some reports, Pimentel already experienced fever and body aches from March 14 to 18, however, he only took the CoViD-19 test on March 20.
