Dr Abdul Mabud Chowdhury, a sylhety, UK citizen warned Prime Minister Boris Johnson that frontline workers desperately needed more PPE. Just three weeks later he has sadly died after being diagnosed with coronavirus.
On 18 March he wrote a message to Boris Johnson asking him to “urgently” ensure personal protective equipment for “each and every NHS worker in the UK”.
He told the prime minister that healthcare workers “are in direct contact with patients” and have a “human right like others to live in this world disease-free with our family and children”.
Dr Chowdhury was a locum urologist who worked at Homerton Hospital in East London and died on Wednesday at Queen’s Hospital in Romford after testing positive for coronavirus.
Talking to Dr Chowdhury’s cousin in US Mr Mahabub Chowdhury about Dr Chowdhury, he said that Dr Abdul was an excellent human being. Dr Abdul was very helpful and supportive to all relatives. Dr Chowdhury will be a big miss for UK and Bangladesh.
