Jason Killens, Chief Executive at the Welsh Ambulances Services NHS Trust, said: “Today, Monday 20 April 2020, the Welsh Ambulance Service lost its first colleague to Covid-19.
"Gerallt Davies MBE, 51, (pictured) was a paramedic at Cwmbwrla Station in Swansea and his passing is a devastating blow for us all.
"Gerallt, who joined the service in 1994, was not just a valued member of our team but of St John Cymru Wales, where he was National Operations Officer, a role for which he was awarded an MBE in 2019 for his services to first aid provision in Wales.
"Gerallt’s loss will be sorely felt by everyone here at Team WAST, and we extend our heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies to his family.
"Our focus now is on supporting Gerallt’s family and bereaved colleagues at this very difficult time.”
