Coronavirus in London: siblings of 13-year-old Brixton boy who died of coronaviruses now have symptoms


Two siblings of a Brixton boy who died of a coronavirus are now showing symptoms.

Ismail Mohamed Abdulwahab was only 13 years old and had no underlying health problems when he tragically died of the virus at King’s College Hospital on Monday March 30.

Unfortunately, two of his siblings developed symptoms, including temperature and loss of taste, according to a family friend who called online.

Development means that her mother and six siblings are forced to isolate themselves and cannot attend her funeral in Brixton today (Friday April 3), said Mark Stephenson.

In a statement through GoFundMe, Mr. Stephenson said, “Shaykh Sharif Zain will conduct the funeral and I will deliver a short speech for the Abdulwahab family and a few relatives and friends.

“We hope we can send a live stream of the funeral to her mother and siblings so they can be there remotely, but they are obviously devastated that they cannot be there in person.

“It is extremely overwhelming for everyone involved, but they were very touched by the warmth and the very positive messages of support from people following their call. “

Earlier this week, Ismail’s family appealed to the public to stay home to stop the spread of Covid-19.

“As a family, we are still trying to cope with the sudden death of Ismail,” they said.

“He leaves behind six siblings who are completely devastated and it has been made more difficult not to be able to be with Ismail while he was in the hospital.

“Finally, we are all praying during this difficult time for all those affected by this Covid-19 virus and we wish everyone a speedy recovery.

“We also wanted to reiterate the need for people to listen to government advice.

“Covid-19 is a virus that attacks everyone in our society, not just the elderly or those with pre-existing conditions.

“So please do everything you can to make sure we respect social distance; keep people at home as much as they can, to protect the NHS and save lives. “

“Soft and kind”

The family also paid tribute to the much loved teenager.

They said, “We are heartbroken as a family because of the devastation caused by the coronavirus because it becomes too real for us as a family and community.

“Ismail was a loving son, a brother, a nephew of our family and a friend of many who knew him.

“His smile was comforting and he was always gentle and kind. “
