A 21-year-old woman has reportedly died of coronavirus in the UK – and is believed to be the youngest person in the country with “no underlying health conditions” to succumb to the bug.

The family of Buckinghamshire resident Chloe Middleton posted the grim news Tuesday on Facebook, according to local media.

“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,” Middleton’s mom, Diane Middleton, wrote.

Chloe’s aunt, Emily Mistry, also posted about the young girl’s COVID-19-related death on Facebook and noted that her “beautiful” and “kindhearted” niece had “no underlying health issues,” Metro UK reported.

“My loved ones are going through the most unimaginable pain, we are shattered beyond belief,” Mistry wrote.

“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,” the relative added.

The post went on to say: “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 …”

The UK’s youngest victim is an 18-year-old with “significant underlying health issues” who died in Coventry, West Midlands, after contracting COVID-19. But the virus was not said to be his direct cause of death, Metro UK reported Sunday.
