A 21-year-old girl has tragically died after contracting Coronavirus in the UK.
Chloe Middleton is thought to be the youngest person to die from the virus with no pre-existing health conditions.
Following her unexpected death, Chloe’s family have took to social media to share their heartbreak and ‘unimaginable pain’.
Her family say that Chloe was completely healthy and are urging people in the UK to follow the governments measures to stay at home.
Her mother, Diane Middleton, wrote on Facebook:
To all the people out there who think 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 also took to social media to stress that Coronavirus is incredibly dangerous to those who are young and healthy too.
My beautiful, kind hearted 21 year old niece Chloe has passed away from Covid-19. SHE HAD NO UNDERLYING HEALTH ISSUES.
My loved ones are going through the most unimaginable pain, we are shattered beyond belief.
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. Until we meet again…
Rest in peace Chloe.
