THE CORONA VIRUS DEATH THAT WASN’T
This week, the news of the heart-breaking death of 21-year-old Chloe Middleton went across red top tabloid mainstream and social media. She was reported to be Britain’s youngest coronavirus victim with no pre-existing condition. And so her case was quickly held up as proof as to why young people, thought to be too blasé about Covid-19 – should take the outbreak more seriously.
But the Guardian reports this afternoon that her death has not actually been recorded as a Covid-19 death: ‘Middleton was taken to Wexham Park hospital in Slough last weekend after she had a heart attack.
Attempts to resuscitate her failed and she was pronounced dead soon after arriving. A Berkshire coroner said the death was related to Covid-19 after being told Middleton had a cough, the source said. But this surprised medics at the hospital, who have not recorded it as a coronavirus incident.’
An NHS source tells the Guardian that ‘the coroner’s bizarre move “raised eyebrows” at the hospital because (Middleton) had not tested positive for the disease’.
This shows us the dangers of allowing political imperatives, i.e., the need for young people to take this crisis seriously, to get ahead of the facts. Amid this outbreak, we need a clear-eyed discussion of what’s really going on. It seems this tragedy was too swiftly leapt upon and turned into a cautionary tale about Covid-19, purely because it aligned with some people’s worst fears. We need to do better. Like this story?
