A 21-year-old girl identified as Chloe Middleton from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire has unfortunately become the youngest person to die of coronavirus in the UK with no pre-existing health condition.
An 18-year-old boy died from the virus in the UK on 23 March, but he had some “significant underlying health issues” and as such was being treated for that, as confirmed by Professor Kiran Patel, chief medical officer for University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust.
Mother of Chloe, Diane Middleton wrote on Facebook:
“To all the people out there that thinks it’s just a virus please think again.Speaking from a personal experience this so-called virus has taken the life of my 21-year-old daughter.”
Chloe’s aunt, Emily Mistry issued a plea, asking everyone to adhere to government guidelines.
