“I cannot imagine what our frontline healthcare workers go through on a daily basis having to wear it for extended hours while doing their job. Much respect to them and what they do! Thank you for your sacrifice ??” he wrote.

Tosh also uploaded two photos on Facebook, one of him wearing the PPE suit and the other  after removing it. In a comment on the post, a fan who did not appear to be from Singapore shared that there are frontliners who have to wear the suit for at least eight hours straight.

Prior to wearing the suit, the frontliners will eat while they can as there is no time to eat while on duty. They also stop drinking water so that they do not have to visit the toilet.
