2 Apr – Jason Abalos recently took to social media to mourn the loss of good friend and neighbour, Dr Leandro Resurreccion III, known to his pals as Dr. Jun.

The actor shared the sad news on 31 March, saying that the said paediatric surgeon at the Philippine Children's Medical Center succumbed to COVID-19 on Tuesday.

Recalling their many conversations, Abalos stated that Doc Jun is a good father who is always proud of his children, and enjoyed riding motorcycle even to work.

"This morning, he was gone. I still can't believe it. What about his children, his family, his friends, and co-workers," he added.

The actor stated that all the frontliners' want is for the public to stay at home so that the virus will not spread further.

"This is the only thing we could do to help them. They are risking their lives for us, let's help them," he said, adding that the government should also do their job in protecting these frontliners.
