Another doctor in the frontlines versus COVID-19 has succumbed to the disease.

Roberto "Bobby" Anastacio, a cardiologist from the University of Santo Tomas and the Makati Medical Center (MMC), died on April 10 in the line of duty.

"We honor health warrior Roberto 'Bobby' V. Anastacio, MD, whose oath, commitment, and dedication led him to fight at the COVID-19 frontline," the MMC said in a Facebook post.

The hospital also lauded the doctor for his 30 years of service.

"MakatiMed salutes Dr. Bobby and the many other health heroes who poured their hearts and into the medical vocation to the extent of sacrificing their lives so that others may live," it said.

"His dedication and legacy will continue to serve as an inspiration among us, and his selfless sacrifice shall not be in vain as we all unite as one in fighting this battle," it added. -Joahna Lei Casilao/NB, GMA News
