(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – A brave nurse who died after contracting coronavirus had warned his family about not having proper PPE – and was left working with just a ‘paper mask, plastic gloves and a pinny’.
Grandfather Gareth Roberts, 65, had come out of retirement to work at Llandough Hospital in Cardiff and was doing extra shifts to cope with the crisis.
But he became ill himself with coronavirus, and gradually his condition deteriorated. He died at Prince Charles Hospital in Merthyr Tydfil, south Wales on Saturday.
His family have now hit out at the lack of protective equipment after the death of the ‘much-loved and dedicated’ member of the health team.
