We extend our most sincere condolences to the family and loved ones of Ma. Theresa Cruz. As a brave nurse in the frontlines, she was instrumental in our COVID-19 response and we are grateful for her selfless dedication and service she has rendered for over a decade.
We have reached out to the bereaved family and are in communication with Ms. Joie Cruz, the daughter of Mrs. Cruz.
We hold our health workers in the highest regard, and we will extend all the needed assistance to protect those who risk their safety to protect others.
