A scientist who helped guide Britain through the covid crisis has been remembered by her family as “the loveliest, kindest person who always inspired and cared for others” after her death in a cycling accident in Italy.
Susannah Boddie, 27, was the chief health data scientist at 10 Downing Street.
Mrs Boddie, from Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire, suffered fatal injuries after being thrown from her bike while going down a steep downhill path on a wooded path on the Brescia side of Lake Garda on Saturday morning reported the Daily Mail.
A statement from Ms Boddie’s family, who requested privacy at this time, recalled her vitality and the affection with which she was held by family and friends.
It read: “Susannah lived life to the fullest and had accomplished a lot in her short life.
“She put more into her life than you would have thought possible.
