President Rodrigo Duterte missed his only event for Wednesday amid rumors that he was ‘hospitalized’ earlier in the day. Duterte was supposed to attend a PAGCOR check turnover event in Malacanang but the Executive Secretary attended in his behalf.

This amid reports that President Duterte was ‘rushed to hospital’ hours earlier. Was Duterte really hospitalized? Malacanang denied this and merely said the president was spending ‘private time’ at his official residence, Bahay Pangarap.

Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque told the media that there is nothing wrong with the chief executive as he was merely spending some private time. Roque added that this was probably due to the fact that Duterte did not have a weekend.

But the president will be up again with a full schedule tomorrow, Thursday. This according to Special Assistant to the President (SAP), Bong Go. One of his appointments for Thursday will be a dinner with the Philippine Military Academy Alumni Association, Inc. in Malacañang.

Despite admitting that he has Buerger’s disease and Barrett’s esophagus, Duterte and Malacanang constantly assure the public that the president is healthy. Even his common-law wife, Honeylet Avancena, said so.

Interviewed last month, Honeylet said there should be no reason for concern about Duterte’s health. In fact, she said, this is the reason why she can stay in Davao worry-free while the president is in Manila. Avancena added that if we see her constantly by the president’s side, then that may be a sign for concern.
