Retired Military Policeman Dies Of Coronavirus During Ross Kemp Documentary

Retired Military Policeman Dies Of Coronavirus During Ross Kemp Documentary

A retired military police officer who asked to be filmed for Ross Kemp's ITV documentary to show the impact of coronavirus, passed away before the programme aired.

Paul Breeze asked the former EastEnders actor-turned filmmaker to shoot footage of him so that he could appear on last night's programme Ross Kemp: On The NHS Frontline which looks at how the NHS is fighting the deadly virus.

The first episode, which aired on 16 April at 8:30, featured Mr Breeze, 63, being taken to a ward at Milton Keynes University Hospital Trust. Then in last night's final instalment, Ross Kemp explains in a piece to camera how the retiree had sadly passed away.

Paying tribute to Mr Breeze, 55-year-old Kemp says: "In the last episode of the programme which aired two weeks ago, a very brave man called Paul Breeze, who'd been a serviceman all his life, asked us to film him so we could show the public just how cruel Covid-19 is.

"A fighter sadly to the end, he lost that fight and he died as many have. But I just want to say a huge, a huge thanks to him for being so brave and allowing us to show the impact of this awful virus."

He explained that ventilators can damage people's lungs which are already severely compromised due to Covid-19 and added that a surge or second peak might be likely once lockdown is eased.

Dr Manji said: "I think ventilators can work. Because some people do survive. But the reality is, the longer you are on a ventilator, particularly with the Covid lung, which is a very damaged lung, the more the survival ratio drops.

"The ventilator can also damage, does also damage lungs. It's buying us time for the patient to get over the Covid. So, the ventilation itself is not a natural thing."

Touching on the government's plans to ease the lockdown, he went on: "The reality is, as the lockdown eases, it is very likely we will have another surge or another peak. It is a concern for me, absolutely because as lockdown eases and people start to co-mingle again, there is that risk.

"So I think the message is still the same, even if lockdown eases, you need to be safe, have distance. You need to make sure you're not shaking hands.

"You need to be using your tissues, catch it and bin it. Wash your hands and be careful of surfaces that you are not familiar with. Despite the team working so hard on every single patient, to try and make them better. Despite all of that, we're seeing a very high death rate, a mortality rate."
