Shona died on Friday afternoon at age 47 after what was initially assumed to be symptoms of a Covid-19 infection and later reported to be a heart condition.

“Mr Ferguson’s untimely passing was due to Covid-19 related complications, and not a heart operation as reported in the media. We ask that you give the family time to process this painful loss, and respect their space during this time,” said The Ferguson Foundation in a statement.

Earlier in the week that Ferguson was in ICU “fighting for his life”.
