Doctor VinceVincent Okafor, 57 has been evicted from his rented place he was staying and said his landlord feared he would bring coronavirus into the property.
He said: ‘I thought to myself, even if I were to do that. Where would I pitch up? At the KFC car park?’
He emailed 15 people who the hospital suggested but Dr Okafor could still not find accommodation.
He said: ‘My landlord served me a verbal eviction order to pack out of his property.
‘His reason was that since I work at the hospital and treat the elderly, I was likely to bring the virus to his house.
‘I didn’t have anywhere to stay to help the people I was recruited to come and help.’
One potential landlady suggested that he bought a tent to live in after she asked the doctor whether he had offered to help fight Coronavirus.
