Heathrow Airport Immigration Officer Sudhir Sharma died of the coronavirus just 24 hours after his daughter Pooja also died of the coronavirus.
According to The Sun, 61-year-old Sudhir Sharma, who worked at Terminal 3, died of coronavirus and his pharmacist daughter Pooja, 33, also lost her life.
Airport officials believe that Sudhir Sharma was not infected with the coronavirus while on duty, but contracted the virus from somewhere else, as he last came on duty on January 7.
According to airport officials, "This is very sad news. Sudhir Sharma was the best man. Everyone on duty is talking about him."
"Sudhir's widow will not be able to attend his last rites and it is a pity," he added.
According to the report, Sudhir Sharma had been ill for many years due to various illnesses due to which he did not even come on duty for several days.
Sudhir Sharma's daughter Pooja, on the other hand, was a pharmacist at Eastburn District Hospital in London. A few days before her death, she was diagnosed with corona, after which she was undergoing treatment.
According to the report, it was not clear whether Pooja contracted the coronavirus due to her father or whether the virus was transmitted to her from somewhere else.
"Sudhir was a great man, he was an experienced officer, he will always be remembered," said Nick Jariwala, director of the Border Force at Heathrow Airport, quoting Sharma.
On the other hand, a friend of Pooja wrote about him that he and Pooja are colleagues of the university. It was very sad to hear the news of his demise.
