A Leicester based coffee house owner died on Thursday 9th April after reportedly contracting coronavirus. 51-year-old Raj Aggarwal ran the Spar in Queens Drive, Wingston and the Insomnia Coffee Shop, in Market Harborough. Staff at the Insomnia Coffee Shop, in Adam and Eve Street, informed customers on its Facebook page of the death of the father-of-two. The post read:
“Dear all customers. It is with great sadness to have to announce that Raj, the owner of our coffee shop, passed away yesterday morning. This is difficult news for his family, friends and the Insomnia family, to who we send out loving thoughts and prayers at this devastating time.
Harborough MP Neil O’Brien also paid tributes to Aggarwal saying it was fitting that Mr Aggarwal's last post on his personal Facebook page was about him delivering supplies to the local NHS.
There are more than 1000 cases of coronavirus reported across Leicestershire
