Marcos in ‘excellent’ health, to resume public duties

MANILA, Philippines — President Marcos will resume his onsite engagements at Malacañang today after he was forced to skip some events last week due to flu-like symptoms.

He will preside over a sectoral meeting that will tackle updates related to the El Niño phenomenon and the outlook on La Niña.

The President will also welcome visitors from the US and India, according to schedules released by the Palace. Marcos and some members of the Cabinet will meet with a US congressional delegation composed of American senators.

In a Facebook post, the Presidential Communications Office (PCO) said the President and First Lady have “completely recovered” from their flu-like symptoms and are now in “excellent” health.

“Their attending physician has confirmed that they are free from all symptoms, enabling them to promptly return to their regular duties, effective immediately,” the PCO said. “The President has been in meetings today and will resume his public duties tomorrow (Tuesday).”

Marcos will also receive Indian External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, who is undertaking his second visit to the Philippines from March 25 to 27.

According to the Department of Foreign Affairs, Jaishankar’s visit aims to advance trade and tourism between Manila and New Delhi.

The Indian official will also meet with his Philippine counterpart, Foreign Affairs Secretary Enrique Manalo, to tackle defense and maritime cooperation, food security, development, health care and financial technology cooperation.

Last Wednesday, the PCO said Marcos, 66, and First Lady Liza Araneta Marcos, 64, had developed flu-like symptoms following their full schedule in the past days and were advised by their physician to get some rest.

Because of his condition, Marcos canceled his attendance at some events, including a luncheon hosted by the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines in Manila and the Philippine Army’s 127th anniversary at Camp O’Donnel in Tarlac.

Before developing flu-like symptoms, Marcos arrived from his visit in Germany and Czech Republic, attended the World Economic Forum and met with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken at Malacañang.
