Following Yap’s revelation, House Secretary-General Jose Luis Montales told ABS-CBN News that they will again disinfect the Batasan Pambansa premises.Yap held up one of the 2 posters calling on the public to stay home during the special session that became controversial on social media because netizens felt that the lawmakers were likening themselves to medical frontliners.
“Yup. Sinabi ko kay Speaker na nagsafety measures ako kasi wala pa test ko. Pero wala naman ako kasi symptoms pa nun," he said.“Nung March 15 nag pa test ako kasi may ubo ako na mild. Sabi 5 days lalabas result pero pumasok pa ako 16 kasi may mga meeting na need attend sa Congress," he said.
“Pagdating ng March 15 po may ubo-ubo kasi ako 2 weeks na noon baka may symptoms baka may COVID ako nagpatest ako noon," Yap added."Ako po nagpa-test po kasi ako March 15. Sinasabi po nila pag pulitiko po VIP. Hindi po ganoon. March 15 ngayon ko lang po nakuha result ko, 10 araw po 'yun. Ang akin po ako nagpa-test ako dahil noong March 10 ako ay nagkaroon ng hearing sa Committee on Appropriations tungkol sa supplemental budget na kailangan ng ating presidente para labanan ang COVID-19," he said.
Yap said he was told by the Department of Health to just take precautions while waiting for his result. Yap also said he had to leave Monday's session early due to chills.Aside from attending meetings in Congress and the Palace, Yap also said he was doing constituency work while waiting for his COVID-19 test result.
Yap reiterated his call for the public to stay home. Yap also apologized to everyone he was in close contact with even as he assured his constituents that work will continue even during his isolation.
