Some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry took to social media to pay tribute to the unsung heroes who tirelessly work on the frontlines amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
Last Sunday, March 15, an online campaign that sought to encourage the public to offer two minutes of their time to health workers made rounds online.
Various local celebrities then used their influence by sharing photos referring to the said campaign on social media.
Among the celebrities who paid homage to public health workers were Charo Santos, Judy Ann Santos, Karla Estrada, Luis Manzano, Jessy Mendiola, Nadine Lustre, and Alden Richards.

Kayo ang tunay na mga bayani.. maraming maraming salamat sa walang sawa at buong puso ninyong pagtulong para mailigtas ang mga kababayan natin na tinamaan ng virus na ito.. sama sama po tayong tumulong sa kung anong paraan man.. maliit o malaki para wag ng lumaganap pa ang kinakaharap natin sa ngayon.. malalagpasan natin ito, kung tayo ay makikinig at susunod... #labanpilipinas
