A man suspected of alleging that he had coronavirus while spitting on a rail worker who later died of the virus was interviewed today by police.
Belly Mujinga, 47, was on the promenade at London Victoria station, where she worked in the ticket office, when the man, who said he had the virus, spat and coughed over her and a female colleague in March.
Mujinga Died Of Coronavirus
Both women were got sick within days of the incident and Mujinga, who had been experiencing some respiratory problems, was carried to the hospital and put on a ventilator.
She died on April 5, 14 days after the assault at the busy rail station.
British Transport Police said investigators had now recognized a 57-year-old man in connection with the incident.
A spokeswoman said he was interviewed under caution today at a London police station.

However, they cleared the air about that they are not looking to identify anyone further in connection with the incident.
Prime Minister Words
Prime Minister Boris Johnson represented parliament and expressed with great remorse that the death of Mujinga, who had an 11-year-old daughter, was sad.
‘The fact she was persecuted for doing her job is completely shocking,’ he said.
