A 47-year-old mother died a few weeks after a man who claimed to have Chinese coronavirus and coughed on him while he was working at a train station in London.
On March 22, Belly Mujinga, a train ticket office worker, was attacked along with her colleague by a man while both were stationed at London Victoria station. The two women fell ill with symptoms of coronavirus days after the attack.
Describing the terrible attack, her husband, Lusamba Gode Katalay the word per ITV: “The man asked him what he was doing, why he was there, and he said they were working. The man said that he had a virus and spit on them. They reported it to their supervisor. Belly went home and told me everything.”
Mujinga was hospitalized on April 2 and used a ventilator, but tragically died three days after being treated at the hospital. Her husband said that he had chronic respiratory problems before contracting the virus and had undergone surgery four years earlier. Mr Katalay said that the day he was hospitalized was the last day he saw his wife.
“We just said: ‘Be good,’ and that God is in charge. We made a WhatsApp video at the hospital, but then I didn’t hear from him again. I thought he might be asleep, but the doctor called me to tell me that he had died, “he said.

The British Transport Police said that they had launched a criminal investigation into the incident. The attack was recently reported to the police, despite claims from the union of Ms. Mujinga, the Salary Transport Staff Association (TSSA), that she and her coworkers had requested the matter to be referred to the police at the time of the attack.
TSSA also asked the question why Mrs. Mujinga worked at the train station at all with the underlying health problem and said that they were considering taking legal action on the matter.
“As a vulnerable person in the ‘risk’ category, and his condition is known by his employer, there are questions about why he has not resigned from the front line of duty since the beginning of this pandemic,” said Manuel Cortes of TSSA.
“Instead of talking about loosening of the lockdown, the Government must first ensure that appropriate preventive and protective measures have been taken so that more lives are not lost,” Cortes added.
In response to the tragic attack, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman said: “It is very reprehensible for key workers to be attacked in this way while serving the traveling community.”
“Our thoughts are with Mrs. Mujinga’s family at this terrible time,” the spokesman added.
