A UK-based Ghanaian nurse who died from the coronavirus disease has been honoured by her colleagues and staff of security agencies in the county.
The 28-year-old and other departed frontline workers were given a standing ovation for their contribution to the fight against coronavirus.
In a video posted by Bedfordshire Police Department on Twitter, nurses together with personnel from the county’s fire department stood in front of Mary’s workplace and held a minute silence for her followed by thunderous applause.
