A NHS worker has died at the hospital where he worked after testing positive for coronavirus.
Khalid Jamil, 57, was a healthcare assistant at Watford General Hospital and is the fourth member of the NHS to die at the hospital this month.
The father-of-two, who lived in St Albans, had worked for West Herts NHS Trust since March 2006.
A Go Fund Me Page has raised nearly £5,000 to support his family.
West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust said: “Sadly, despite the excellent care given, Khalid Jamil died on Tuesday, April 14.
“Khalid joined the trust in March 2006 and colleagues who worked with him describe him as ‘a kind, gentle man who was unassuming and respectful to all his colleagues and helpful to others’.
“He was very fondly thought of and will be greatly missed.”
