The former deputy spokesperson of Former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III confirmed he is at the Makati Medical centre on Monday, but only for a “scheduled checkup and a routine procedure.”

Abigail Valte issued the statement following a report which claimed that Aquino was rushed to a hospital to undergo a heart procedure.

“Former President Noynoy Aquino is at the Makati Medical centre for a scheduled check-up and a routine procedure,” she told reporters in a message.

She also assured the public that Aquino is “alright and in high spirits,” adding that he even made a joke about his supposed heart procedure.

“While he is currently under observation, I was able to speak to him and apprize him of what is being reported in media. Nagbiro pa na baka daw kaya heart procedure ang balita kasi heartbroken siya,” she said.

“Thanks everyone for their concern,” she added.

This is not the first time that concerns were raised about Aquino’s health. Last August, the 59-year old former president skipped the death anniversary commemoration of his late father, former senator Benigno Aquino Jr. His camp previously said Aquino did not attend the event as he was down with the flu.
