Dr. Peter Tun

  • On April 13, 2020, Dr. Peter Tun (Khin Tun) passed away.
  • He was the first medical doctor in the UK to succumb to COVID-19.
  • The sad story — lack of PPE at his ward (despite his requests to provide them) — was aired in the TV stations and covered in the newspapers.
  • On April 13, 2021 — the first anniversary of his untimely death — the Royal Berkshire Hospital held a memorial for him and planted a cherry tree at the staff well-being center.
  • The cherry tree was his favorite especially because his mother’s name is Dr. Khin Kyi Nyunt (Cherry Tin Gyi).
  • Dr. Peter Tun (MRCP) served for four years as Associate Dean at Oxford University.
  • The Royal College of Physicians plan to confer a Fellowship to Dr. Peter Tun posthumously.
