Because he walked through his garden with his rollator during the Corona crisis and collected millions in donations, Tom Moore became a British national hero. The Queen herself ennobled him. Now he dies in the hospital at the age of 100. British World War II veteran Tom Moore, who rose to become a Corona hero through his fundraising campaign, is dead. His family announced this on Twitter. She shares a photo of the man with the years 1920 – 2021. Moore was infected with the coronavirus. He hadn’t received a corona vaccination because he had to take medication for pneumonia. Many people mourned Moore on social networks. The Queen also issued a notice. „The Queen is sending a private letter of condolence to the family of Captain Sir Tom Moore,“ the royal family announced on Twitter. „Your Majesty has very much enjoyed meeting Captain Sir Tom and his family in Windsor last year. Your thoughts and those of the Royal Family are with you.“ The British flag was hoisted at half mast over the seat of government in London.

Adoration and Guinness World Record

The family only announced on Sunday that the 100-year-old was hospitalized with a corona infection. He was tested positive for the virus a week ago after pneumonia, it said. He therefore needed additional help with breathing. Moore had originally planned to walk through his garden a hundred times with his rollator by his 100th birthday at the end of April 2020 and to get sponsored for it. He hoped to raise £ 1,000 in this way – but the campaign was so popular that Moore finally raised £ 33 million (a good 36 million euros) for the British national health service NHS. He even set a Guinness World Record for the highest amount ever raised in a charity run.

The senior became a national celebrity. The military made him „Honorary Colonel“ and in July he was personally knighted by Queen Elizabeth II. Even after he was admitted to the hospital, many people around the world wished him a speedy recovery.
