In today’s medical bulletin from former senator Jinggoy Estrada, son of former President Joseph Ejercito Estrada, shared that his father has to be placed in mechanical ventilation after his condition suffered a setback as a result of worsening pneumonia.
Estrada is still in hospital confinement after he was rushed after the former president was diagnosed and tested positive for COVID-19.
“Yesterday, my father’s condition suffered a setback as his pneumonia worsened. Because of this and the resulting increase in oxygen requirement, his doctors decided to place him on mechanical ventilation. This was done to improve oxygen delivery as well as to prevent the tiring of his respiratory mechanism. My father has always been a fighter and I hope that with the help of your prayers he will win this battle. Pls continue praying for his immediate recovery. Thank you very much,” the younger Estrada posted on his Facebook account.
