BD man dies in Scotland due to virus

28 April 2020 bdnews24.com

The death of a Bangladeshi man from the coronavirus in Scotland has left his family facing up to an uncertain future shortly after migrating to the United Kingdom to start a new life.
Mofizul Islam, 49, died with COVID-19 on April 5 and was buried in the Muslim section of a cemetery in the Scottish capital of Edinburgh, the BBC reports.
His wife and children were in isolation and so
were unable to bid him farewell. The family believe Mofizul became infected during the daily three-hour bus journeys between his Edinburgh home and his job at a Midlothian pizza outlet.
His death has left the family "completely helpless", they told the BBC.
Shaha Haque, who befriended Mofizul after he arrived in Edinburgh, told BBC Scotland the family were struggling for money and food but the community would help them out.
"They have no documents, no bank account, no nothing. They have problems," Haque said.
