LIPA Archbishop Gilbert Garcera, D.D. has recovered after he was hospitalized due to coronavirus.

Sunday marked the first time that Garcera appeared in public, albeit online, during a private Mass for the Feast of the Good Shepherd from his residence.

Fr. Jazz Siapco, who concelebrated the Mass, said that Garcera has already tested negative from Covid-19 but he still needs to rest for his continued recovery.

โ€œThe archbishop canโ€™t receive visitors yet because he still needs to restโ€ฆ But he is already covid-free. Thank God!โ€ said Siapco, who heads the archdioceseโ€™s social action ministry.

Garcera on March 21 announced that he was infected with Covid-19, making him the tenth Filipino prelate to contract the disease.

In the last two months, three more prelatesโ€” Archbishop Jose Palma and Bishop Emeritus Antonio Raรฑola of Cebu, and Archbishop Florentino Lavarias of San Fernandoโ€” had been infected with Covid-19 but they all have recovered.| – cbcpnews.net
