Malacañang refuted on Thursday, March 7, the reports claiming that former First Lady Imelda Marcos passed away.

"Fake news yung kumakalat na balitang wala na ang dating First Lady. ty [Thank you]!" the Presidential Communications Office said early Thursday.

President Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr. and First Lady Liza Araneta-Marcos, who attended Association of Southeast Asian Nations-Australia Special Summit, went straight to the hospital upon their return to Manila to check the Marcos matriarch..

Marcos reportedly arrived in Manila from Melbourne at 11:34 p.m. on Wednesday.


The 94-year-old former first lady was admitted to an undisclosed hospital this week due to slight pneumonia and fever.

Marcos ealier thanked Filipinos for praying for his mother.

“I just spoke with my mother’s doctors. She is suffering from a slight case of pneumonia and is running a fever. She has been put on a course of antibiotics, and the doctors are confident that this will relieve her fever. She is in good spirits, has no difficulty breathing, and is resting well. I thank the Filipino public for their concern and prayers,” the president said in a statement.


Senator Imee Marcos said their mother was already feeling better but was still in the hospital. She added that they were being careful about her condition because of her age.
