The Philippine senator, who was considered person under investigation (PUI) that time, reasoned out that he was limiting his movements when he visited the Makati Medical Centre Hospital accompnying his wife who was about to give birth.

He said that they went to the hospital at 6pm and received the positive result at 9pm.

Citing Department of Health guideliness, PUI must complete a 14-day quarantine period.

Pimentel said nobody had imposed a qaurantine on him.

“But to cooperate with the enhanced community quarantine, hindi rin naman po ako lumalabas. With or without quarantine hindi naman po ako lakwatsero. I’m a homebody. Natural po sa akin just to stay at home,” he was quoted as saying by ANC.
