UK-Captain Sir Tom Moore dies at 100 after testing positive for Covid

Captain Sir Tom Moore, the second world war veteran who raised approximately £39m for NHS charities during the first coronavirus lockdown in spring 2020, has died aged 100 after testing positive for coronavirus, the Guardian reported.

Moore was admitted to Bedford hospital on Sunday 31 January, after being treated for pneumonia for some time and testing positive for Covid-19 last week.

In a statement posted on the veteran’s Twitter page that same day, his family said he had been treated at home until Sunday when he needed additional help with his breathing.

His daughter Hannah Ingram-Moore said her father had not needed to be taken to an intensive care unit.
