Paul Reid, CEO, HSE, extended his sincere condolences on behalf of the HSE, to Mariter’s husband Nicolas, daughter Nice Marie, and two grandchildren Axl and Arabella, and all of her family and friends, at their sad loss, in a phone call earlier today, with Nice Marie.

Paul Reid CEO, HSE said: "Mariter was a valued and highly respected member of the St Vincent’s University Hospital team. She was a very caring person who loved her role as a healthcare assistant. Mariter was such an important part of the hospital and she will be sadly missed by her colleagues and those she cared for. Her incredible contribution along with all those in the Filipino community has been remarkable, in what has been a truly difficult and challenging time for everyone working in healthcare."

Her sad passing reminds us that this is a terrible disease that has left so many people mourning the loss of loved ones. This is an stark reminder that we all need to do our very best to follow the public health guidelines, to stop the spread of this awful illness.

Ends.
