William Shakespeare has died five months after becoming the first man in the world to receive a Covid-19 vaccine. The first man in the world to be vaccinated facing coronavirus has died aged 81. On December 8 last year, William Shakespeare’s name and face became plastered across global press after experiencing his jab at the University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.
After suffering for a period of illness, Tributes have commenced flooding in for the beneficiary from Coventry who died last Thursday at the same hospital. According to The Mirror reports, Local councilor Jayne Innes has defined him as a “much-loved figure” with the Coventry Labour party.
Ms. Innes said: “He was such a lovely man, one who had a real commitment to making his local area better”. “During the lockdown, local families will have enjoyed walking amongst the trees planted by Bill and his colleagues in Allesley back in the 1980s”.
“He was also very involved with the creation of the Coundon Wood in 2005 and fundraising for the purchase of Elkin Wood, now managed by the Woodland Trust in 1997.”
She continued in her applause: “Bill was a life-long campaigner, so he was delighted to be able to help encourage everyone to have the vaccine to return to all the things we enjoy in life. I’ve had my first. Having our jabs is the best tribute we can all pay Bill”.
“He was a keen photographer, loved jazz and socializing, and also loved the natural world and gardens. Bill will be remembered for many things including a taste for mischief”. “He was a much-respected figure in the Coventry Labour Party and he will be sorely missed.”
Coventry Labour Party secretary Angela Hopkins, added: “Bill has been an active member for many, many years, particularly in Bablake ward where he has walked hundreds of thousands of steps every year campaigning for the party and was an Allesley Parish Councilor”.
“I know that he will be greatly missed not only by members in Bablake, but by colleagues across the constituency and beyond.” Bill was not just known in political circles as he used to work at Rolls Royce and was also a school governor at Allesley Primary School, as well as at Coundon Court School but above all, he was a good and kind family man.
