First Covid-19 victim with no pre-existing health conditions dies

The first victim with no pre-existing health conditions has died from Covid-19 in the UK.

The victim has been named as 21-year-old Chloe Middleton.

Her mother ‘Diane Middleton’ stated that Chloe had no underlying health issues and wrote on Facebook “To all the people out there that thinks it’s just a virus please think again”.

Her death has drawn attention to the fact that it is not just the elderly and people with underlying conditions that are at a risk from dying.
