A care home nurse described as "loving, kind and generous" has died after contracting coronavirus.

Lalaine Lopez Pesario, 54, who had worked at Mumbles Nursing Home, Swansea, since October 2018, died on Sunday, May 3.

A GoFundMe page has now been set up in her memory by her devastated family and friends.

A post on the page states: "Lalaine Lopez Pesario, a loving wife, mother, sister, auntie and a friend, may have lost the battle to Covid-19, but she was a warrior who bravely fought and risked her life in the name of service and dedication to her profession.

"She is, and will forever be, our hero. Lalaine's kindness and generosity was overflowing. Her smile and laugh was infectious.
