Liang joined the Philippine Army as a reservist in 2018. Last month, he was promoted to 2nd lieutenant alongside former beauty queen Zahra Bianca. They are among the celebrities who have joined the military as reservists, including Dingdong Dantes, Gerald Anderson and Matteo Guidicelli.
The deployment of buses for the medical staff comes after public transportation was suspended as part of the enhanced community quarantine imposed on Luzon. It has also been assured that those using the free services will follow health protocols such as social distancing and body temperature checks. / ra
