Villar, who heads the Department of Public Works and Highways, revealed the results of his latest swab test Wednesday.
“I regret to announce that today, July 15, I received my test result and it is positive for COVID-19,” Villar said in his official Facebook page.
He’s the third member of President Rodrigo Duterte’s Cabinet to get COVID-19. Education Secretary Liling Briones and Interior and Local Government chief Eduardo Año have already recovered from the disease weeks ago.
