A Nigerian doctor and his wife have been struck dead by Coronavirus in the United Kingdom 10 days apart.

The MailOnline reports that the Nigerian doctor and his care home director wife died from coronavirus just 10-days apart.

Dr James Oniah, a retired radiologist, succumbed to Covid-19 on April 24 while Mary passed away from the virus on May 4.

They both died at King George Hospital in Ilford, East London leaving behind three children as well as other family members and friends who saw them as ‘mum and dad’.

Mrs Oniah, 61, is thought to have contracted Covid-19 during her job as a Regional Director for a care home provider before her 79-year-old husband was also struck down.

The couple, who had a son and two daughters, lived in Ilford.
