Donita Nose has finally gone home from hospital confinement after surviving the new coronavirus disease.
The comedian showed how the medical workers clapped and cheered her as she left the hospital, as seen on her Instagram page last Wednesday, Aug. 12.
“Thank you to all the FRONTLINERS,” she said. “[A]lam ko ang hirap at sakripisyo nyo (I acknowledge your hardships and the sacrifices).”
The “Wowowin” co-host also reminded the healthcare staff to take care of themselves.
“Saludo ako sa inyong lahat!” she said. “Salamat sa pag aalaga sa aming lahat.”

The TV host shared on Aug. 1 that she was getting better and stronger after testing positive for coronavirus, as seen on her Facebook page.

In relation to the stigma attached to the disease, the comedian requested others to show more compassion to those who have tested positive for the virus and avoid treating them with antipathy.
