21-Year-Old Becomes Youngest COVID-19 Fatality In Uk

A 21-year-old lady, identified as Chloe Middleton from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire has become the youngest person to die of the novel coronavirus in the UK.

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

Mother of the deceased, Diane Middleton, had to advice the public online about the virus, that it is real and people should take it seriously and stay indoors.

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.”

Her aunt, Emily Mistry, added: My beautiful, kind hearted 21 year old niece (Chloe) has passed away from COVID19. She had no underlying health issues.
