A 21-YEAR-OLD woman with no underlying health concerns has died from coronavirus, her family said.
Chloe Middleton is believed to be the UK’s youngest victim with no existing medical issues.
Her family said it should act as a wake-up call for people to take the Covid-19 pandemic seriously.
Mum 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.”
The family, from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, called on people to stay indoors to halt the spread of the virus.

On Sunday it was announced an 18-year-old boy had died after testing positive for coronavirus in Coventry, West Midlands.
But doctors said he had “significant underlying health issues” and that Covid-19 was not linked to his cause of death.
Chloe’s aunt Emily Mistry wrote on Facebook: “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.
