Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who turns 75 this month, will be tested for the coronavirus, according to a Facebook post by presidential aide Bong Go.

Go said that both he and Duterte are undergoing testing to “ensure that we are fit and healthy to engage the public and perform our duties.”

The decision was taken after some cabinet members were exposed to confirmed cases of the virus and are now under self-quarantine, according to the post.

The Philippines confirmed 15 new cases on Tuesday, bringing the national total to 35.
