JPE contracts dengue, is rushed to hospital
SENATE Minority Leader Juan Ponce Enrile is being treated for dengue at the Makati Medical Center, her daughter Katrina confirmed on Wednesday.
She told reporters her father was brought to the hospital Tuesday night after having fever in the last few days.
”He was brought to the hospital late last night and he was positive for dengue,” Katrina said.
She said the 91-year-old senator was now in stable condition but still needed close monitoring.
Enrile had been absent at the Senate plenary hall for the past few days.
Last month, the Supreme Court granted his petition to post bail on the plunder charges filed against him in connection with the pork barrel scam.
