A teenager aged just 18 has died in the UK — one day after testing positive for COVID-19, according to officials.
The unidentified teen died in University Hospital in Coventry and is believed to be the youngest of 281 fatalities linked to the pandemic in the UK, officials confirmed to The Telegraph on Sunday.
The 18-year-old had “significant underlying health issues” when confirmed to have COVID-19, the hospital’s chief medical officer, professor Kiran Patel, told CoventryLive.
“They had also tested for COVID-19 on the day before they died but this was not linked to their reason for dying,” Patel insisted in a statement. “Our thoughts and condolences remain with the patient’s family and loved ones at this difficult time.”
The statement said that the teen’s family “has expressed their thanks for the support and well wishes from friends and family.”
