This is part of her earnest and profound message of gratitude to all frontliners serving the nation amid the onslaught of the COVID-19 virus as seen in this video, showing other Kapamilya celebrities honoring and recognizing them.

“Mga Kapamilya, lahat po tayo ay nahaharap sa pangamba para sa ating sarili, sa mga mahal natin sa buhay, at pati na rin sa ating komunidad. Narito po ako para makiusap sa inyong lahat na sana’y mas maging maingat tayo,” Ma’am Charo said. “Nais ko rin pong magpasalamat sa lahat ng ating mga frontliners, ang ating mga doktor, nurses, medical practitioners, ang ating hospital staff, cleaners, mga security guards, ang ating kapulisan, mga sundalo, maraming maraming maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat sa lahat ng sakripisyo na binibigay niyo para sa kaligtasan ng sambayanan.”

She also asked everyone to pray for these frontliners and the continued recovery of more COVID-19 patients, as we find a cure for the disease.

“Huwag po nating kalimutan na patuloy silang ipagdasal. Ipagdasal po natin ang lahat ng ating mga frontliners, ang ating mga government officials. Ipagdasal natin ang patuloy na paggaling ng mga pasyente na may COVID-19 at sana po ay makahanap na ng lunas para sa tuluyang pagtigil ng virus na ito,” the retired former ABS-CBN President and CEO added.

Meanwhile, Angel Locsin showed her admiration for those servicemen and health personnel never giving up their duty to serve at this time of crisis.

“A round of applause to our dedicated frontliners,” Angel noted. “Sa lahat po na mga nagbibigay ng mga services at sa lahat na mga gumagawa ng paraan para maging safe po tayong lahat, maraming maraming salamat po sa inyong serbisyo para po sa amin. ‘Wag po kayong magkakasakit at kapit lang po.”

Make It With You star Liza Soberano could not help but express her love for these selfless frontliners.

“Sa lahat po ng health workers at sa lahat po ng pulis at sundalo, maraming salamat po sa service ninyo. Thank you so much for protecting the Philippines and the Filipino people. Lagi din po kayo mag-iingat,” Liza stressed. “We will be praying for you. We will be praying for our fellow Filipinos and thank you so much for risking your lives. Thank you so much and we will be keeping you in our prayers. God bless us all. Love you guys.”

Sandugo actress Cherry Pie Picache likewise reminded everyone to trust God in these difficult times, as she also thanked all the frontliners for their service.

“Mula sa aming pamilya, taos pusong pasasalamat po namin sa lahat lahat lahat na patuloy na nagbibigay serbisyo sa bayan at sa mga mamamayan. Patuloy po tayong magtiwala sa awa at pagmamahal ng Diyos at nawa’y palawakin natin ang pagmamahal at awa na yan sa lahat, lalong lalo na ating mga kapatid na higit na nangangailangan. May God have mercy and bless us all. Kaya natin yan, Kapamilya,” Cherry Pie declared.

Enchong Dee, Robi Domingo, and Chef Jose Sarasola, for their part, recognized the entire spectrum of frontliners for the valued deeds in serving the needs of the people.

“To all the doctors, the nurses, the health workers, kahit ‘yung mga janitors natin, ‘yung mga tumutulong sa atin in the frontline of this outbreak, maraming maraming salamat po. In behalf of my family and my community, sana po mas marami pa ang matulungan ninyo at sana po malaman namin kung paano kami makakatulong. Again thank you very much and together, we can fight this outbreak,” Enchong pointed out.

Robi meanwhile said: “Sa mga medical frontliners po natin, sa lahat ng security guard, sa lahat na patuloy ang kanilang trabaho, maraming maraming salamat po. Saludong-saludo po kaming lahat sa tapang at serbisyo na binibigay n’yo para sa bansa natin. Kayo po ang talagang the best. Mabuhay po kayo.”

For his part, Chef Jose emphasized: “I just want to say thank you to all the doctors, the nurses, and the medical staff for helping us fight this deadly virus. Maraming, maraming salamat po sa serbisyo na binibigay n’yo sa amin, sa buong country. And siyempre sa mga sundalo at pulis, who are helping us do the proper procedures to fight this virus. Please take care po sa trabaho ninyo and God bless.”

24/7 actress Denise Laurel also honored the medical and security personnel who risk life and limb to protect us, while urging people to cooperate and follow safety procedures.

“I just want to take the chance to say thank you and show appreciation to all our nurses, our doctors, the military, the police for standing there in the front lines in their blood, sweat and tears doing something to protect all of us,” Denise said.

“I hope we can all cooperate with them and give them the respect they deserve and to listen to them and to pray for them at this time. Again, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, from my family to yours. We appreciate you and sending you all my love in life,” she added.

It's Showtime host Amy Perez further recognized all those in charge of instilling safety and security, and those serving the basic needs of the people amid the COVID-19 outbreak—from the President to the LGU officials to workers who deliver food items to supermarkets and groceries and to the medical and security frontliners—and thanked them for their selfless zeal.

“Nais ko pong magpasalamat sa ating pong medical workers, lahat po ng ating mga frontliners, mga doktor, nurses, med tech, lahat po na nandyan sa ospital na patuloy pa ring pumapasok at nagbibigay ng serbisyo at para tugunan ang mga pangangailangan ng mga Kapamilya po natin na naapektuhan ng COVID-19. Maraming maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat. Kami pong ay saludo sa inyo. Maraming salamat din sa ating mga Kapamilya naman na naghahatid ng ating mga pagkain, mula po sa mga nagmamaneho ng trak, hanggang sa mga nagbubuhat po at nagdadala ng mga pagkain na yon sa supermarket, sa palengke at sa grocery para po maserbisyohan ang lahat.
