Disregard any information stating that, Alfredo Lim is dead, as he is alive and feeling better.
According to a statement released by Philippine Star online, it reads;
Former Manila mayor Alfredo Lim “is very much alive and in fact making good progress,” said Lim’s chief-of-staff Ric De Guzman, belying reports that Lim has passed away due to COVID-19.
In a Facebook post, Manila District 1 Councilor Niño Dela Cruz appealed for “prayers” and healing for his grandfather. The post was deleted after several minutes but was confirmed by his colleagues and friends at the city council.
“He is appealing to everyone to give them some moments of privacy as we’re focused on Mayor Lim’s swift recovery from his current illness. We thank all those who have expressed concern and offered prayers for him and us during these trying time,” De Guzman said in a statement.
De Guzman said he hopes the statement “puts to rest all misinformation that he passed away a stop to negative speculations about his health.”
