A Gambian hospital worker who went “above and beyond” in his role had died after testing positive for coronavirus.

Momodou Dibba, who was a house-keeper at Watford General Hospital, died on April 29. 

In a statement, West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust said Mr Dibba was “kind, caring and considerate” to patients and staff.

Mr Dibba is the fourth worker at the hospital to die after contracting Covid-19.

His death comes after that of Ate Wilma Banaag, a nurse, and healthcare assistants John Alagos and Khalid Jamil.

Mr Dibba also worked on reception in the Emergency Service Assessment Unit after his shifts had finished.

The Trust said Mr Dibba, who was known as Mo and had worked at the hospital for seven years, would “be sorely missed”.

Its statement said: “Anyone who knew Mo would know how kind, caring and considerate he was to patients and staff.

“He would go above and beyond for everyone, organising staff leaving parties and supporting everyone in their roles.”
