John Lloyd Cruz called for the cooperation of everyone in the fight to end the COVID-19 crisis as he took part in a campaign reminding Cebuanos about the importance of washing one’s hands, observing proper social distancing, and staying at home, among others.
Speaking on behalf of the University of the Philippines Medical Alumni Society - Cebu Chapter, the Kapamilya actor gave his message in Tagalog and Cebuano.
“Ako man guilty usahay. (Kahit ako guilty minsan). Pero sugod karon, wa nay rason. (Pero simula ngayon, wala nang rason). No more excuses,” he said.
He added: “Magsuot ho tayo ng face mask. Maghugas lagi ng kamay. Manatili po tayo sa ating mga balay (bahay). At kung kinakailangan po lumabas, sundin po ang social distancing. Naay paglaum. Kita ang paglaum. (There is hope. We are the hope).”
UPMAS Cebu, thanking John Lloyd for his participation in the said campaign, wrote: “Naa pa ta second chance. (We still have a second chance).”
