Sa medical bulletin na ibinahagi ng anak niyang si dating senador Jinggoy Estrada ngayong Martes, April 13, negatibo na sa COVID-19 ang resulta ng bagong RT-PCR test ng dating Pangulo.

Umaasa ang pamilya Estrada na mailipat na sa regular room si Erap mula sa intensive care unit (ICU) na kinalalagakan nito mula nang magpositibo sa COVID-19.

Nagpasalamat naman si Jinggoy sa lahat ng netizens na nagdasal para sa paggaling ng 83-year-old actor-politician.

Narito ang buong pahayag ni Jinggoy na ibinahagi niya sa kanyang Facebook account (published as is):

Isinugod si Estrada sa ospital noong March 28 matapos magpositibo sa COVID-19.

April 6 nang kabitan siya ng mechanical ventilator upang makahinga nang maayos.

Nitong nakaraang araw, kumakanta-kanta na raw ang dating Pangulo sa ospital, hudyat na gumagaling na ito.

Sa ilang panayam kay Jinggoy, sinabi nitong umaasa siyang makalabas na ang ama sa ospital bago dumating ang ika-84 kaarawan nito sa April 19.
