He said: "There were three people in my ward that were very ill. They couldn't eat, they were throwing up, they had diarrhoea, they had fevers and some other symptoms.

"Witnessing some people suffering was very touching. There was a day I was in the toilet and somebody came in, he didn't know I was in there. And I could just hear him. He was saying 'Oh my God, help me God. My wife, don't let me die. My children, Oh God'.

"This was something that he was doing privately. Even though I knew that he was very unwell, I didn't know it was at that level."
