Miriam Santiago is in critical condition, she's now in ICU


Former senator Miriam Santiago was at the intensive care unit (ICU) right now in the hospital of Taguig City. Santiago was diagnosed of lung cancer.

According to the sources, she was in a critical condition.

The Manila Bulletin report said that the former senator has been confined at the ICU of St. Luke’s Medical Center-Global City in Taguig since September 3.

Recently, Santiago was also hospitalized after she ran and lost in the May 9 presidential elections, where former Davao City Mayor and now President Rodrigo Duterte won the race.

She was confined last May 31 due to complications at the Makati Medical Center 

The former senator was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in 2014, but she claimed she was able to conquer the illness. 

Also, she later developed anorexia as a side effect of her medications.

Based on InterAksyon, Miriam Santiago, a constitutional law expert, is the first Filipino and the first Asian from a developing country to be elected a judge of the International Criminal Court.
