Labella extends his leave, continues treatment for ear infection


Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella is still on sick leave.

His doctor advised Labella to stay home a few days more while he recovers from an ear infection.

The infection had prompted him to go on leave Wednesday last week, after his doctor recommended that he took some rest so his illness would heal fast. (

The mayor said his doctor also told him to shy away from people.

“I’ll just be in the house, but I must continue the treatment and avoid seeing people,” Labella said yesterday.

He expects to return to work later this week.
