A railway ticket officer has died from Covid-19 after a man who claimed to have the deadly bug spat at her and a colleague at London Victoria Station.
Belly Mujinga, 47, was working at London's Victoria Station in March when a man spat and coughed at her and a colleague. Within days of the incident, both women fell ill with the virus.
Ms Mujinga, who had underlying respiratory problems, was admitted to Barnet Hospital and put on a ventilator but died on April 5, her trade union, the Transport Salaried Staffs Association said.
It was also disclosed that only ten people attended her funeral.
The union has reported the incident to the Railways Inspectorate, the safety arm of the Office for Road and Rail (ORR), for investigation and is taking legal advice on the situation.
