A mother of six-year-old twin boys has lost her life to coronavirus after succumbing to the deadly illness despite having no underlying health conditions.
Caroline Saunby died after initially falling ill and collapsing at home before being taken to James Cook University hospital in Middlesbrough by air ambulance.
The family of the 48-year-old mother victim say the symptoms worsened and Caroline soon struggled to breathe before later losing her battle with the infection.
Mrs Saunby, who passed away on Sunday, after showing signs of the illness last Thursday, leaves behind her two twin sons Joseph and Elliot and grieving husband Vic.
Now her devastated twin sister Sarah Jarvis has spoken out in a bid to encourage others to take the coronavirus threat seriously and take all the precautions necessary as laid down by the government.

The message of Sarah and the family of 'healthy' mum who died days falling ill states Caroline 'was full of life; the most amazing mum and wife.' 
It is believed Ms Saunby, who had no prior health problems, noticed discomfort and she fell ill on Thursday with suspected tonsillitis after developing a sore throat.
However her symptoms worsened over the weekend and she found herself battling sickness and struggling to breathe, before then collapsing at her family home. 
In a Facebook post, Caroline's sister added: 'Our lives have been ripped apart forever by this horrendous virus that people still are not taking seriously enough.

'Caroline was 48, fit and healthy with no existing conditions and she was taken from us in four days. When will people start to take this as seriously as it needs to be?'
'She was just the most kind, selfless generous loyal person you would ever meet.
'Nothing was ever too much trouble; she couldn't help being kind to all creatures and was loved by so many. 
'My only solace is knowing that she achieved her biggest goals in life meeting the love of her life and getting married and having her beautiful boys.'
Sarah outlined the additional heartache now being suffered by the Saunby family, as they have to remain in isolation due to safety measures around virus are unable to mourn together as a result.
The number of people admitted to hospitals in England with coronavirus has soared in the past 10 days, particularly in London, which is still at the heart of the country's outbreak

She added: 'Every part of our family in lockdown and we can't console Caroline's boys or our parents or each other.
'We can't have a funeral to celebrate her life. This is our reality waiting to see if her husband will get ill.
'Please listen to this and take this as a warning to us all what is happening right now.'
Mrs Jarvis later thanked the NHS staff who fought to try and save her sister's life. She described Caroline as a 'germophobe and obsessive hand-washer' who 'took every precaution under the sun.'
She told the Northern Echo: 'All of the doctors and nurses at James Cook were incredible, as were the paramedics with the Great North Air Ambulance - we are forever grateful for all their efforts.
'People believe that because they are young and healthy they aren't at risk but are the reality of how coronavirus can change anyone's life.'
To ease the Saunby family of any financial worries during this difficult time, a fundraising page has been set up. So far, a staggering £14,000 has been raised in just two days.
