Station ticket office worker dies of COVID-19 after being spat at

A railway ticket office worker has sadly died after being spat at while on duty.

Belly Mujinga, 47, was working on the concourse at London Victoria station in March when a member of the public spat and coughed at her and a work colleague, saying he had the corona virus. Within days both women fell ill with the symptoms. Unfortunately Ms Mujinga had underlying respiratory problems and was put on a ventilator after being admitted to Barnet Hospital but passed away on the 5th April. Her union, the TSSA (Transport Salaried Staff Association) announced her death and only 10 people were allowed to attend her funeral.

The TSSA has reported the incident to the Railways Inspectorate for investigation and is taking legal advice on the situation.
