Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, April 11) — Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque says he is already "feeling normal" on his third day of confinement due to COVID-19.

In a statement on Sunday, Roque said he is continuing medication and will likely be confined until Thursday.

"I am better after only one vial of remdesivir and steroids. I came in at the right time since pneumonia was caught early on," Roque said in his Facebook post. "Doctors won't discharge me though until 4 more vials of remdesivir which means I will be confined until Thursday."

"But I do feel normal already on my 3rd day of confinement, enough to do my thrice a week briefings," he added.

Roque said he will once again check into a temporary isolation facility on Friday, almost a month after revealing that he first caught the virus. On Saturday, he revealed that he was hospitalized for COVID-19.

On March 15, he first announced that he contracted the virus. However, he refused to disclose his test result to the public. On March 25, he said he is already COVID-free. It is not clear when he tested positive again.
