As the number of confirmed cases, persons under monitoring, and persons under investigation for COVID-19 continues to rise in the Philippines, “It’s Showtime!” host Vice Ganda has donated medical supplies to those in the frontlines directly battling the spread of the virus.
Vice Ganda shared on Instagram the many boxes of face masks, disposable gloves, safety goggles, alcohols, and disinfectant sprays that he and his team sent out to four different hospitals across Metro Manila.
These hospitals are the Lung Center of the Philippines, the Quezon City General Hospital, the San Lazaro Hospital in Manila, and the Philippine Children’s Medical Center.

“Maraming maraming salamat po sa lahat ng mga frontliners para sa pagmamahal at pagkalinga ninyo sa mga madlang people!!!” Vice wrote on the caption of his post. “Mabuhay po kayo! Pagpalain ng Diyos ang inyong kabayanihan.”
(“Thank you to all the frontliners for your love and service to the public. Long live! May God look kindly upon you for your heroism.”)
This comes a few days after Vice announced that he will be providing assistance to his over 400 employees for his beauty brand Vice Co. including an early release of their 13th-month pay and service incentive leaves, loan deferment, and non-conditional cash assistance program.
