Another Filipino nurse in UAE has died of Covid-19 infection.

According t a dailybread.news.blog, Lezly Ocampo Concepcion, 31, was supposed to visit her five-year-old child in the Philippines but couldn’t due to travel restrictions.

She was working as a nurse and died in the evening of May 12 in an Abu Dhabi hospital.

Concepcion is the third Filipino nurse in UAE to die of Covid-19.

“The Filipino nursing community in UAE has lost another nightingale. Farewell to you, ma’am Lezly. Our heartflt condolences to the family and may you rest in peace. Real heroes don’t have a name on the back of their uniform, they have their country’s flag on the arm of a uniform,” Philippine Nurses Association (PNA)-UAE chapter said in a Facebook post.
