LOOK: Bongbong Marcos’ medical certificate seen as fishy and inauthentic

The medical certificate was scrutinized thoroughly by netizens, with some calling it fake

Netizens were quick to question the authenticity of the medical certificate presented by presidential aspirant Bongbong Marcos’ camp.

Marcos has gone into isolation after one of his staff caught the coronavirus.

“Two personalities who’re with Marcos almost every day have been tested positive of the coronavirus – his chief of staff, lawyer Vic Rodriguez and his security escort, prompting the former senator to go in isolation,” his camp said in a statement on Friday.

The certificate was produced after Commission on Elections Commissioner Rowena Guanzon demanded one be produced to justify Marcos’ failure to appear in a preliminary conference on disqualification bids against him.

Marcos was given the option to attend via Zoom, but he didn’t show up.

“Why don’t you ask your client to go on Zoom? Even if he’s in isolation he can have a laptop or a phone,” Guanzon said.

His camp explained that he had “difficulty in speaking due to a painfully congested throat.”

The medical certificate was scrutinized thoroughly by netizens, with some calling it fake.

The written statement looks fishy and unusual to those familiar with one.
