Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, April 9) — Filipinos are encouraged to show their appreciation for the country's COVID-19 frontliners starting Thursday, Day of Valor.

Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles said Wednesday Filipinos can simultaneously applaud all medical workers and those who do essential work during the health crisis. He said the public can praise the country's modern-day heroes every afternoon from their home's door or windows.

His office clarified the planned show of gratitude will happen every day at 5 p.m.

Nograles said the public who opt to express their appreciation through social media can also send "good vibes" digitally.

“Puwede tayo kumanta o sumayaw para sa ating frontliners para ipakita natin ang pagmamahal natin sa kanila at mapadalhan natin ng ‘good vibes’ sa napaka-challenging na panahong ito,” he said in a virtual media briefing.

The total number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the country stands at 3,764. There are 177 deaths and 84 recoveries recorded.
