U.K. COVID Hero Captain Tom Moore Dies of Coronavirus at 100

Captain Sir Tom Moore, one of the heroes of the U.K.’s fight against the coronavirus pandemic, has died after contracting the virus. He was 100.

In a statement, Moore’s daughters Hannah Ingram-Moore and Lucy Teixeira said: “Whilst he’d been in so many hearts for just a short time, he was an incredible father and grandfather, and he will stay alive in our hearts forever.”

Moore was taken to Bedford Hospital on Sunday with breathing difficulties. He died on Tuesday.

Moore raised close to £33 million for the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS).

More to come.
