A 21-YEAR-OLD woman has become the youngest person in Britain with no pre-existing medical conditions to die from coronavirus.
Chloe Middleton’s family said they were ‘shattered beyond belief’ and her mother Diane posted a heartbreaking message on Facebook.
‘To all the people out there that thinks it’s just a virus please think again,’ Mrs Middleton wrote.
‘Speaking from a personal experience, this so-called virus has taken the life of my 21-year old-daughter.’
Chloe, from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, had ‘no underlying health conditions’, her aunt Emily Mistry confirmed. She posted: ‘The reality of this virus is only just unfolding before our very eyes. Please, please adhere to government guidelines. DO YOUR BIT.
‘Protect yourselves and protect others!! The virus isn’t spreading, PEOPLE are spreading the virus.
‘Life as we know it has changed dramatically but unless we all act now to protect ourselves and others, the longer this turmoil and anguish will go on. Rest in peace Chloe.’
Chloe’s sister, Amy Louise Middleton, said her children ‘couldn’t have had a more loving, crazy nutcase for an auntie and we wouldn’t have had it any other way’. She added: ‘She went above and beyond for me and was my best friend even though she had a habit of pinching my clothes, so many great memories that I’m so, so, so grateful we got to make and share and that will never be forgotten!
‘Please don’t take this virus lightly because you never know what’s around the corner. About time people took this seriously, before too many people end up in this devastating position!’
On Sunday, it was announced that an 18-year-old from Coventry had died after catching Covid-19. He reportedly had ‘significant underlying health issues’.
