A London nurse who died with coronavirus "sacrificed his life for his patients", his family said today.
Ken Lambatan went back to frontline nursing after working in a research laboratory at St George's Hospital, Tooting.
Speaking to ITV News from the Philippines his brother Ezel said the 33-year-old was fit and healthy with no obvious medical condition before he caught the virus.
Mr Lambatan, who specialised in the treatment of heart patients, answered a call for extra nursing staff to cope with the coronavirus surge.
He was taken to St Thomas's Hospital by ambulance after falling ill and spent more than a week on a ventilator. He died on Monday.
His brother described him as a hero.
