A London Rail ticketer has been killed by the Coronavirus having been spat at by a Covid-19 patient at the train station, according to reports.
Information reaching us has it that Belly Mujinga, 47, was dispensing her duty at the station in March, when a member of the public claiming to have Covid-19 spat and coughed at her and a colleague, the Transport Salaried Staffs Association (TSSA) said.
According to Standard UK, Within days of the assault, both women fell ill with the virus.
Ms Mujinga, who had underlying respiratory problems, was admitted to Barnet Hospital, where she eventually died of the dreaded virus on April 5.
Her husband Lusamba, 60, and their daughter Ingrid, 11, never got to say goodbye, according to the Mirror.
“My daughter Ingrid just does not understand what has happened, how we can never be together again” Mr Mujinga, a former warehouse worker told the newspaper.
“It’s terrible to lose the person you love so quickly. We are sure she got the virus from the man who spat on her, and it could have been so easily avoided.
British Transport Police said it has now launched an investigation into the incident.
It has not been confirmed that the spitting incident is directly linked to Ms Mujinga contracting the virus.
