CITY OF MALOLOS – As a result of his gruelling official schedules, Bulacan Governor Daniel R. Fernando recently suferred from exhaustion and dehydration.
In the past couple of weeks, Fernando has been actively conducting daily relief operations in various locations all throughout the province to ensure the welfare of his constituents affected by a series of typhoons and monsoon rains.
It was known that during an LGBT event last September 11, 2023 at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium, Fernando suddenly halted and cancelled his speech, apparently feeling unwell.
He was immediately assisted by Vice Gov. Alex Castro and accompanied him and brought to the hospital and was attended to by his cardiologist, Dr. Berwyn Flores, who confirmed that the reason for the governor’s “irregular gestures at the event was exhaustion, over fatigue and dehydration.”
It was learned that in the last two weeks, the governor was overworked, fatigued and exhaustions since the start of the flood going to affected flooded areas distributing food packs coincided with the celebration of Singkaban Festival, a close family revealed.
Fernando expressed deep gratitude for the well wishes, prayers and messages of concern from his family, friends, fellow public servants and Bulacan citizens.
His doctors advised him to undergo medical work ups to ensure his overall good health.
Dr. Berwyn Flores said the governor is able to carry out his public duties “without disruption” and is expected to come back in full swing after a few days of adequate rest.
