As we continue our look-back over 2020, May continued to bring tragic news as the pandemic continued.

Elma Cavalida, 49, who worked at the Harrow hospital since arriving to the UK in 2010, died on April 26 after contracting Covid-19.

She was admitted to Barnet General Hospital on April 8 after her symptoms began to flare up; her husband called her a “true fighter”.

Belly Mujinga, 47, a railway ticket office worker died in April of coronavirus. Ms Mujinga, a mother to 11-year-old Ingrid, was admitted to Barnet Hospital and put on a ventilator but died on April 5, her trade union, the Transport Salaried Staffs Association, said.

There were initial claims that she had been spat at while on duty on the concourse of Victoria station on March 22.

But prosecutors in August ruled out homicide charges against a 57-year-old suspect after medical tests confirmed he had not been infected with coronavirus. British Transport Police said there was not enough evidence of spitting or another action that could lead to infection and concluded Mrs Mujinga’s death did not occur because of that incident.

And a mum-to-be brought chaos and joy to a hospital when she gave birth in the reception area.

Roxanne Robinson, 31, from Enfield, dashed to Barnet Hospital when her waters broke in the early hours of the morning.

But she only made it as far as the lift doors when she fell to her knees shouting, "the baby’s coming".

The hospital put out an emergency call and staff from every department rushed to help.
