FORMER Oriental Mindoro Rep. Reynaldo Umali has passed away. He was 63.
His brother, incumbent Congressman Alfonso Umali confirmed the untimely death of the former solon due to cardiac arrest.
He was also infected with coronavirus disease (COVID-19) last December 2020.
Prior to COVID-19, the former chairman of the House committee on justice, was diagnosed with liver cancer stage 3 and eventually worsened to stage 4.
“Magmula noon dire-diretso na siya. Dec 21 na ICU na siya. Around December 26 na- intubate na. Nagkaroon na ng complication, tinanggalan na ng tubig sa baga, bumababa na ang blood pressure. Na intubate na siya dahil yung kanyang oxygen level mababa na,” Rep. Alfonso said.
“Kahapon nakakakita ng bacteria sa kanyang liver. Ngayong umaga, bumaba na ang dugo niya tapos nag cardiac arrest kaninang umaga,” he added.Publication Source : People's Journal
