A mother of five identified as Shabnum Sadiq has died after contracting coronavirus during a trip to Pakistan.

The 39-year-old woman died on Monday, April 6, after suffering complications from the deadly disease, Metro reports.

Legit.ng gathers that the deceased, who served on Slough Borough Council, England, left behind her husband and five children, including 13-year-old quadruplets.

Council leader James Swindlehurst said: "This is very shocking for all of us and our thoughts are with her family and friends.

"Shabnum was a dedicated councillor and, despite only being in her first term, she had made a contribution far beyond the years she’d spent in the council chamber.
