Julie passed away in Paris on Thursday and is one of 1.696 coronavirus victims in France.

Her mother told AFP that Julie had a mild cough a week ago, and she also had difficulty breathing on Saturday.

She was admitted to the hospital, where multiple coronavirus tests were performed, which showed her to be positive. Her condition worsened dramatically in just a few days and she passed away on Thursday.

Julie lived in a town south of Paris. Her sister, through the media, warned everyone that the virus was not only dangerous for the elderly and sick.

"We were told from the beginning that the virus does not affect young people very much. We believed in it, like everyone else," her mother told AFP.

Julie had no health problems or suffered from chronic illnesses.
