A 62-year-old Nigerian doctor, Edmond Adefolu Adedeji, has died of coronavirus in the United Kingdom.
The deceased worked at the Great Western Hospital in Swindon before his death.
The deceased’s family confirmed his death in a tribute made available to ITV.
“He died doing a job he loved. We as a family are grateful to God for the life of Dr Edmond Adefolu Adedeji,” the tribute reads.
“He died doing a job he loved, serving others before himself. We would like to thank the staff and his colleagues for looking after him during his final days.”
The Nigerian doctor is survived by a wife, three children and three grandchildren.
Great Western Hospital also mourned the doctor in a condolence message.
“On behalf of the whole Trust, I would like to extend our sincere condolences to Edmond’s family. Our thoughts are with them, and his friends and colleagues at the Trust.”
Dr Adedeji is the fourth Nigerian doctor publicly confirmed to have died from the deadly virus.
