    Everyday I'm saddened by the numbers of people in the UK who are dying of Covid-19 but never more so than hearing of the death of Belly Mujinga who was spat at by some low life who said he had coronavirus. He not only spat at Belly but also at her colleague and they both contracted Covid-19. Belly never recovered and later died.

    This has to be one of the most shocking, sad and tragic stories that has come out of this coronavirus crisis. The man that spat at her needs to be caught quickly so he can be put away for murder.

    Today when we clap for key workers we should clap just that bit louder to show our appreciation for the key workers who are keeping our public transport system running.

    It's awful isn't it? :( What a beautiful lady.

    Some debate has opened up amongst some of my friends about the clapping each Thursday. Where I do agree that the NHS doctors and nurses deserve our utmost appreciation, I would like to see some recognition for other key workers too.

    :clap:

    I think the weekly applause has moved on from just clapping the NHS and now covers all key workers and rightly so.

    On my street a woman always shouts "NHS" when she claps on Thursdays and I sometimes shout back "CARE WORKERS" and "SHOP WORKERS". Today I will shout "PUBLIC TRANSPORT WORKERS".

    The clap isnt just for NHS staff now, its opened up

    Agree @Angela Channing If they were to ever find the person who spat at her, they should be tried for murder. Disgusting behaviour but sadly seen in A+E depts on a regular basis by some sick :censer: or drunk.

    we had patients today move from a +ve bay into a -ve bay, its lovely to see :)

    I never tire of when they show on the news someone leaving a Covid-19 ward after they have recovered. It makes a lovely change from all the depressing stuff on the virus that dominates news bulletins every day.

    Good to know @Barbara Fan.

    I’m a key worker too apparently (don’t want applause). I’m applauding for my vets tonight - my pets are so important to me and they’ve been open throughout.

    My Tesco staff have been amazing too.

    Life imprisonment, I would imagine, given the gravity of what was done.

    I'm appalled by this behavior. How can someone be so delibertely cruel? :yikey:
    I think most people who knew they had the virus would stay at home to protect others. So this is mind boggling.

    I guess we don't know if the person who spat at her survived his own Covid-19 infection. If he didn't there will be no punishment.

    On the Isle Of Man, several people have been jailed for a number of weeks for deliberating spitting/coughing at police officers so surely this case, when someone has lost their life as a result, merits tougher measures.
