Doctor pays tribute to NHS nurse who died after contracting coronavirus


A doctor who lost a friend and fellow health care professional to coronavirus has called for the UK to recognise the contribution of migrant workers after the pandemic. Mr Salah Hammouche is a former colleague of nurse Leilani Dayrit and suggested that NHS facilities could be named after professionals like her who lost their lives on the front line of the outbreak. Ms Dayrit, from St Cross Hospital in Rugby, died on April 7 and is one of several Filipino NHS workers to die after contracting Covid-19 over the last week.
