A train ticket officer, Belly Mujinga, 47, has died from Coronavirus after she was spat at by a man claiming to have COVID-19. Belly and her female colleague were assaulted at the Victoria station in London.

Both women fell ill with the Coronavirus a few days after the attack. Belly’s husband, Lusamba Godey Kataley said she was approached on March 22, by a man at the train station who asked her what she was doing.

Belly told the man, she was working. The man then said he had the Coronavirus and spat on her. She was admitted at the Barnet Hospital on April 2 and was put on a ventilator due to her underlying respiratory problems. She died three days later as a result of the virus.

British Transport Police have began an investigation into her assault to trace the man who spat on her.

Her husband said he called her while she was at the hospital but couldn’t hear from her. The doctor later called to inform him about her death.

“I thought she might be asleep, but the doctor phoned me to tell me she had died,” he said.

“She was a good person, a good mother, and a good wife. She was a caring person and would take care of everybody,” Lusamba said.

Belly had an eleven year old daughter. Downing Street described her attack as “despicable”.

Belly’s cousin, Agnes Ntumba said Belly shouldn’t have been allowed to work at the frontline when her condition was well known. She further stated that they should have provided her PPE’s.

The General Secretary of the Transport Salaried Staff, Manuel Cortes said, “As a vulnerable person in the ‘at-risk’ category, and her condition known to her employer, there are questions about why she wasn’t stood down from frontline duties early on in this pandemic.”
