A 21-year-old woman is believed to be the youngest person with no pre-existing health conditions to have died after contracting coronavirus in the UK, Sky News reports.

 

Chloe Middleton, from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, is believed to have died from COVID-19, the disease caused by a coronavirus, on 21 March.

Her mother, Diane Middleton, wrote on Facebook: “To all the people out there that thinks it’s just a virus please think again.

“Speaking from personal experience this so-called virus has taken the life of my 21-year-old daughter.”

Her aunt, Emily Mistry, said Miss Middleton had “no underlying health issues”.

“Please, please adhere to government guidelines. The virus isn’t spreading, people are spreading the virus.”

Miss Middleton is believed to be the youngest person in the UK with no known pre-existing health conditions to have died from the virus.

An 18-year-old boy died from the virus on 23 March, but he was being treated for “significant underlying health issues”, said Professor Kiran Patel, chief medical officer for University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust.

“She had no underlying health issues. My loved ones are going through the most unimaginable pain. We are shattered beyond belief.
