"Father God pls help my husband. He is being rushed to the hospital. His latest X-ray shows that he has developed pneumonia and isolation in a regular facility is no longer ideal," Lani wrote.

Last August 10, Bong shared that he tested positive for the coronavirus shortly after someone from his household and a member of his staff contracted the respiratory illness. 

“Don’t worry, I am okay. Lani and the kids are okay… they’ve all tested negative,” he said on his social media account.
