Speaking the West Belfast MP said:

“Tragically this the third death in the same family as a consequence of COVID19.
“Like many in our health service, this member of the Belfast Health Trust worked tirelessly in challenging circumstances to care for the most vulnerable during this pandemic.
“We owe them a great deal of gratitude.
“All our frontline workers must be actively supported and supplied with Personal Protective Equipment to protect them and their families.
