Man with coronavirus pulled in by police after death of Woman whom he spat on

A man has been interviewed over the death of railway worker who was spat on at a London train station.

Belly Mujinga was allegedly spat at by a man at Victoria station in South west London, who claimed he had the coronavirus.

Ms Mujinga, 47, who worked in the ticket office at the railway station, was outside of her booth in March when a man who claimed to have the virus spat at and coughed over her and a female colleague, British Transport police said last week.

Both women fell ill within a few days and Ms Mujinga, who had underlying respiratory problems, was later taken to hospital and put on a ventilator.

She died on the 5th of April, 14 days after the incident, at Barnet hospital in north London.

A British Transport Police spokesman said: “Following a number of inquiries into an incident at London Victoria station on March 21, officers identified a 57-year-old man from London in connection.

“He was interviewed under caution today at a London police station.

“Detectives will continue to collate evidence and investigate the circumstances behind the incident.

“They are not looking to identify anyone further in relation to the incident.”

Ms Mujinga, 47, had an 11-year-old daughter.

The case continues.
