The parents of a 10-year-old boy, who is thought to be one of the youngest victims of Covid-19 in the United Kingdom, have spoken of their "indescribable" pain following his death.

Speaking to Channel 4 News, Fehzan's parents, Tayyaba and Mohammed Jamil, described their son as a "really courageous fighter" and "soldier", who was a cheerful boy despite his health problems.

In an interview broadcast on Tuesday evening, his father Mohammed said: "There were four of us, now there are only three". The pain is indescribable'.

His mother Tayyaba added: "I just can't describe our loss". Fehzan had a number of underlying health issues.

The family tried to shield Fehzan as best they could during the pandemic, knowing his health issues made him vulnerable.

'We tried to keep Fehzan at home as much as possible.

This is highest figure since May 12, when 614 deaths were reported, and brings the United Kingdom total to 55,838.

Fehzan had been treated at Bradford Royal Infirmary "for many years" and the family said staff let them stay by his side as he died.

Mrs Jamil paid tribute to hospital staff who had treated her son, saying: "All of the staff were very good to us".

"People want to be with their loved ones and those close to them for what is the most important holiday of the year", senior minister Michael Gove said on Tuesday.

At first, when Fehzan went into hospital, the family weren't too anxious, because they were used to his hospital trips.

Mohammed said: "But this time turned out different, he never came home". Covid took him from us, ' Mohammed said.

Fehzan is believed to be one of the youngest victims of the pandemic. A 12-year-old died in June, a 13-day-old baby died on June 18, and an 11-year-old boy died in April.
