Saddened to hear that Dr Alfa Saadu, who was Medical Director at Ealing Hospital when I was Chair of the Trust has died following infection with covid-19. At the age of 68 he came out of retirement to support the current crisis. He was a real gentleman…..

RIP YOU LIVING LEGEND: Living legend #NHS doctor, 68, becomes the fourth medic to die of #coronavirus. Dr Alfa Saadu retired after almost 40 years of service but has now died at just 68 after contracting coronavirus while working part-time at a hospital. https://t.co/gaMfvQRVvl

Such sad news. Dr Alfa Saadu was the father of a lovely guy I knew at school Dani Saadu. Sending love to him. Apparently he didn’t go to the hospital because he didn’t want to take up a bed. Really brings it all home. This crisis will touch us all. https://t.co/gFfKvjflt1

Dr Alfa Saadu, a 68 year old medical doctor, came out of retirement to serve his Country and save lives.
Sadly, he has died from Coronavirus while saving the lives of strangers he never met. Alfa is a hero.
Cause of Death.
