(NY POST) – A British train station worker died of coronavirus two weeks after a sick traveler spat at her, her union revealed Tuesday.
Belly Mujinga, 47, was attacked while working in London’s Victoria Station on March 22 by a man who coughed over her and a colleague, the UK transport union TSSA said in a statement.
“The man said he had the virus and spat on them,” her husband, Lusamba Gode Katalay, told ITV.
Within days, both women fell ill with COVID-19 — and Mujinga died in Barnet Hospital on April 5, exactly two weeks after the attack, TSSA said.
Mujinga — the mother of an 11-year-old girl — had underlying respiratory problems, her husband said. She fell ill within a week of being spat at, and was taken to the London hospital on April 2, he told ITV.
“That was the last time I saw her. We just said, ‘Be good,’ and that God is in charge,” he said.
