MANILA, Philippines — Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana is currently confined at a military hospital for a series of tests.

“I am here at the Veterans (Memorial Medical Center) undergoing executive check-up. I will be out in a day or two,” he told reporters Wednesday night.


“Just a routine executive checkup after I came to the Veterans Hospital for some eye problems. They are doing a series of tests. While here they did a full checkup. Stress-related daw,” he added.

The 70-year-old official also dismissed the rumors that he suffered cardiac arrest.


“That’s what rumors are — exaggeration,” he said.

Lorenzana said he was told by doctors to take proper rest. “Need some rest daw. Stress-related fatigue.” (Editor: Cenon B. Bibe Jr.)
