Angara's wife Tootsy had earlier posted on Instagram on Saturday, March 28, that their situation was tough, as the senator had to "go through this physically alone." The Angaras are currently under quarantine.
Tootsy shared that some services had refused to deliver essentials to their home out of fear of the virus.
"A neighbor wished to have us out of our neighborhood. I don't blame them," she added.
"I had to reach out and ask for help…Family and friends sent us drinking water when we ran out. They sent us oxygen too," she added.
