Tributes have been made to a “fiercely proud” nurse who died after contracting coronavirus and had been working to keep his colleagues safe. The Press Association reports:
Joselito Habab, known as Jo, died at Whiston Hospital on Wednesday with his wife Michelle, an A and E nurse, by his side, a spokesman for Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said.
Jo was recently promoted to orthopaedic trauma nurse co-ordinator but before becoming ill, Jo was back in a key clinical education and training role keeping others safe by doing PPE training and fit testing for face masks.
He was an exemplary nurse and role model and fiercely proud of being both a nurse and a member of the WHH Family.
Joe was a fantastic colleague, always ready to help with a smile on his face. He worked hard and never left a task unfinished.
