Sir Tom Moore, the soon-to-be 101-year-old veteran of the British Army, who raised nearly £ 33 million last year for the Public Health Service (NHS) to help fight the coronavirus pandemic, was rushed to hospital on Sunday. With a coronavirus infection.
A former soldier who became known worldwide as Captain Tom, he served on the Asian battlefield during World War II and was disarmed at squadron rank, according to what was published Sunday by his daughter Hannah Ingram Moore.
He was cured of pneumonia for a few weeks and was diagnosed with coronavirus infection for a week.
According to the information, Sir Tom has recovered so far in his home among his family, but on Sunday, respirators became necessary. However, Hannah Ingram Moore stressed that her father is not receiving care in the ICU.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson wished Sir Tom a full recovery Sunday evening, also on Twitter on behalf of the entire country.
Tom Moore vowed last year to stroll his large lawn a hundred times before his 100th birthday. In return, he asked everyone who could make donations to support the NHS’s sacrifice efforts to curb the coronavirus pandemic.
His primary goal was to raise 1,000 pounds for a charitable fund to support the National Health Service.
Captain Tom celebrated his 100th birthday on April 30 last year, but he had already completed the 100th cycle two weeks ago in his garden between the decorative wall of the Yorkshire Regiment Soldiers. Tom Moore completed ten laps a day using his wheelchair tire around a defined 25-meter perimeter of his garden at his home in Marston Moretten, southeast England.
Nevertheless, donations continued to flow into a separate account in the NHS Trust, which ultimately raised £ 32.8m – more than £ 13bn – nearly 33,000 times the original target of £ 1,000.
Prince William II was among more than a million and a half donors. She is the grandson of Queen Elizabeth, who would later become the ruler of the United Kingdom.
The Queen – who endorsed the extraordinary and unique surrender of Boris Johnson – raised him to the rank of knight who is entitled to the name of Sir I. Last summer, the British Army promoted the veteran warrior, who was collecting massive donations, to the rank of colonel.
It was announced in September that a film on Sir Tom’s life would also be produced, featuring producers James Spring, Nick Morcroft and Meg Leonard.
The name of the production team is Dance Therapy (Find Your Feet) and Fisherman’s Friends.
