A 35-year-old Filipino domestic worker died on Monday in Hong Kong two days after she was sent to a hospital in Tai Po, New Territories. She had been diagnosed with lupus, an autoimmune disease.

Maristel P Pepito, from Baybay, Leyte, died at Alice Ho Miu Ling Nethersole Hospital in Tai Po, hongkongnews.com reported.

It was understood that she was first hospitalized in January and doctors determined that she had lupus. She was discharged on February 5.

But on February 16, she was again brought to the hospital after her condition worsened. An official with the Philippine Consulate in Hong Kong said Pepito had a pulmonary hemorrhage and her lupus had led to acute pneumonia. She was taken to the intensive care unit before she died.

Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) officers visited her on Sunday, and she died the following day.

The official said the consulate was coordinating with the woman’s family, employer, and employment agency on the repatriation of her remains to the Philippines.
