Belly Mujinga was working at London Victoria train station March 22 when a man approached her and a colleague and spat and coughed at them. He said he had the novel coronavirus.
Days after the attack, both women became sick, according to British media reports. Two weeks later, Mujinga, 47, died of the coronavirus. She left behind an 11-year-old daughter, Ingrid, who her father says has barely said a word since.
Because of the coronavirus restrictions in place in Britain, only 10 people were allowed to attend Mujinga’s funeral.
The assault on both rail workers and Mujinga’s death became the subject of a flood of public grief and anger in the United Kingdom, amid a national conversation about when and how to reopen after almost two months of lockdown.
British Transport Police confirmed Tuesday it had launched an investigation into Mujinga’s death, calling on anyone with information about the incident to come forward. Her photos plastered the front pages of British newspapers Wednesday as donations spiked on a fundraising page created to help support her family.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson called her death “tragic” and said the incident was “utterly appalling."
