Philippine’s mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio contracts COVID-19


Mayor of Philippine’s city of Davao Sara Duterte-Carpio has contracted COVID-19, raising concerns for her dad, President Rodrigo Duterte.

The mayor has been playing first lady role since her dad divorced her mum, Elizabeth Zimmerman in 2000.

Duterte-Carpio’s office announced on Saturday that the mayor tested positive for COVID-19 and urged those who had close contact with her in the last 14 days to self-monitor for symptoms.
