Heartbroken wife pays tribute to youngest coronavirus Diagnosed Husband

Britain's youngest coronavirus victim was tonight named as a 45-year-old father-of-two who had been diagnosed with motor neurone disease, as the death toll jumped by 16 to 71 on Tuesday.
Craig Ruston, from Kettering, Northamptonshire, is understood to be the UK's youngest victim after his wife confirmed his death in a deeply moving social media post.
Sally Ruston wrote on Mr Ruston's blog today: 'My Amazing Craig passed away yesterday morning at 6.20am. We are truly heartbroken ... Last Tuesday he was taken unwell and we have since spent the last 6 days in isolation. 
'Craig's chest infection was confirmed as Covid-19. How dare that take Craig who was already facing this (MND), the most vile and evil of diseases.'
Mr Ruston was a shoe designer who had previously worked for Dr Martens, Hunter Boots and Fred Perry before starting a blog titled 'Me and My MND' after his motor neurone diagnosis in 2018, the Northamptonshire Telegraph reported.
Mrs Ruston added in today's blog post: 'My Amazing Craig, I love you forever and ever, from your Amazing Sally and your Amazing girls.'  
She remembered him for his knowledge of history and nature, saying Sir David Attenborough was Mr Ruston's 'all time hero.' 
She added that her husband was a 'wonderfully kind and caring' person who welcomed everyone and that he had had done 'everything in his power' to raise awareness and fight against MND.
Mrs Ruston added: 'To those of you that knew Craig, before his MND diagnosis, after his diagnosis and to all that follow this his blog, I'm sure you knew or could tell what a wonderfully kind and caring person he was.
'He welcomed everyone. There were no airs and graces with Craig. He loved the world. He absorbed the world. He was one of the most intelligent people I know that would absorb information and could somehow explain just about anything.'  
Kettering General Hospital had earlier today confirmed the first death in Northamptonshire. Professor Andrew Chilton said: 'Sadly we can confirm that a man who was being cared for at Kettering General Hospital, and had tested positive for COVID-19 has died. The patient who died on March 16 had underlying health conditions.
'His family has been informed and our thoughts and condolences are with them at this difficult and distressing time.'
Before Mr Ruston's death, the youngest victim was believed to have been Nick Matthews, a 59-year-old who died at Bristol Royal Infirmary on Saturday. Mr Matthews' wife Mary wrote in a tribute: 'Today I lost my life partner and soul mate but most of all my best friend.'
On Tuesday officials recorded the biggest daily spike in cases yet, with 407 patients diagnosed in the past 24 hours – meaning 1,950 Britons have now caught the life-threatening virus that has left the UK engulfed in fear. 
It comes after the government's chief scientific adviser, Sir Patrick Vallance, today admitted there are likely to be around 55,000 cases of coronavirus currently in the UK, calling the staggering figure a 'reasonable ballpark'.

The estimate was based on a model of one death per 1,000 patients, which means the true number of infected people could now be as high as 70,000 – and many people could have no idea they've got the illness. A study published in a scientific journal this week suggested that 86 per cent of infected patients in China were unaware.
Last week the government estimated the number of cases was likely to be between 5,000 and 10,000 but the numbers are expected to have soared since. A total of 50,442 people have now been tested, with 48,492 of those tests coming back negative. 
The massive difference between officials' on-record estimates and the number of cases confirmed by the Department of Health is likely to prompt further scrutiny of the government's testing regime – the World Health Organization urged countries worldwide to 'test, test, test' but in the UK only hospital patients are being tested.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson yesterday stepped up the country's response to the outbreak and urged people not to go out or to visit others unless they had to. He had been warned that the original strategy of trying to slow down an outbreak could lead to 260,000 people dying – new efforts could cut this to below 20,000. 
It came as the government stepped up its efforts to persuade manufacturing companies to help build ventilators for the NHS amid concerns about how long it could take to get production lines up and running.
