BEIJING, CHINA - MARCH 12: Chinese women wear protective masks as they ride the bus in the central business district  on March 12, 2020 in Beijing, China. The number of cases of the deadly new coronavirus COVID-19 being treated in China dropped to below 15,000 in mainland China Thursday, in what the World Health Organization (WHO) declared a global public health emergency last month. China continued to lock down the city of Wuhan, the epicentre of the virus, in an effort to contain the spread of the pneumonia-like disease but has moved to ease restrictions in other parts of the province. Officials in Beijing have put in place a mandatory 14 day quarantine for all people returning to the capital from other places in China and abroad. The number of those who have died from the virus in China climbed to over 3173 on Thursday, mostly in Hubei province, and cases have been reported in many other countries including the United States, Canada, Australia, Japan, South Korea, India, Iran, Italy, the United Kingdom, Germany, France and several others. The World Health Organization has warned all governments to be on alert and raised concerns over a possible pandemic. Some countries, including the United States, have put restrictions on Chinese travellers entering and advised their citizens against travel to China.(Photo by Kevin Frayer/Getty Images) Ilustrasi virus corona COVID-19 (Foto: Getty Images/Kevin Frayer)

Bagi yang menganggap virus corona COVID-19 hanya mematikan bagi lansia, kasus ini mungkin bisa membuatmu berpikir ulang. Seorang wanita 21 tahun di Inggris meninggal tanpa riwayat sakit sebelumnya.

Chloe Middleton dari Buckinghamshire dikabarkan meninggal pekan lalu. Dalam sebuah unggahan di Facebook, bibinya, Emily Mistry menyebut Chloe meninggal karena COVID-19.

"Dia tidak punya riwayat sakit sebelumnya," kata Diane Middleton, ibu Chloe, dikutip dari BBC, Kamis (26/3/2020).

Keluarga berharap tidak ada lagi yang menganggap remeh virus tersebut. Melindungi diri sendiri sama pentingnya dengan melindungi orang lain di sekitarnya.

"Virusnya tidak menyebar, orang-oranglah yang menyebarkan virus tersebut," kata Emily.

Sebelumnya, seorang pria 18 tahun di Inggris juga dikabarkan meninggal dan pemeriksaan COVID-19 menunjukkan hasil positif. Namun dikabarkan pria ini memang memiliki masalah kesehatan serius.
