In a tragic incident NHS doctor Dr Irfan Halim, 45, died of Covid just days away from his boosters coming in. The doctor had spent months away from his family when he died.
His wife Saila Halim said that he was a hard-working husband and was eager to get his third dose, but tragically he caught the killer virus on September 10 – fighting the virus for nine months before tragically dying.
The beloved doctor who went to Swindon hospital and never came home has been remembered as a devoted father-of-four who worked tirelessly throughout his 25-year career treating more than 250,000 patients.
Halim said that she was not sure which vaccine her husband received but he was double vaccinated and always wore full PPE when he was onwards.
A colleague says that Irfan was a fighter who never gave up and always kept believing he would recover. A friend said that Irfan did not smoke or drink and was someone who helped people all the time.
Dr Irfan who held one of the highest volume practices in the UK, saw approximately 300 new patients every month and performed over 1200 procedures annually, was a widely respected surgeon and the entire medical community has been sharing their grief over the loss.
Mrs Halim described him as a 10 man in one body, who was the embodiment of ethics, unconditional friendship, a renaissance man of many skills and a scholar who taught thousands.
A GoFundMe page has been set up for Dr Halim’s family and has already raised more than £80,000.
