A 19-year-old Israeli woman died on Saturday of coronavirus in Jerusalem's Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center.

In a statement, the hospital said the young woman suffered from severe obesity which impaired her mobility, as well as congestive cardiac failure and pulmonary hypertension.

The hospital also said that the young woman required intubation upon admittance to the hospital. She was also placed on an ECMO machine. However, after a week and a half of maximum treatment, she passed away.

She is Israel's youngest coronavirus victim.

So far, 314 Israelis have died of coronavirus.
