‘Healthy’ boy, 13, is youngest UK coronavirus victim


A healthy 13-year-old boy from south London has become the youngest UK victim of coronavirus.

Ismail Mohamed Abdulwahab died at Kings College Hospital yesterday morning.

“Ismail was only 13 years old without any pre-existing health conditions and sadly he died without any family members close by due to the highly infectious nature of COVID-19.”

“I have a 13-year-old and I can’t imagine what you are going through. So so so sorry for your loss. Xxx.”

In a statement, Kings College Hospital told Sky News: “Sadly, a 13-year old boy who tested positive for COVID-19 has passed away, and our thoughts and condolences are with the family at this time.

His family said in a statement seen by the Mirror: “Ismail started showing symptoms and had difficulties breathing and was admitted to Kings College Hospital.

“He was put on a ventilator and then put into an induced coma but sadly died yesterday morning. 

“He had no underlying health conditions. We are beyond devastated.”
