Newborn baby with COVID-19 dies in CT, governor says

Newborn baby with COVID-19 dies in CT, governor says

"A six-week-old from the Hartford area was brought unresponsive to a hospital late last week and couldn't be revived", the governor wrote in a post.

Lamont said ct has the fourth largest number of COVID-19 infections per capita in the US, behind New York, New Jersey, and Louisiana.

Governor of Connecticut Ned Lamont said that the virus attacks the most vulnerable in society, as he described the baby's death as "absolutely heartbreaking".

The governor tweeted that he believes this is one of the youngest lives lost anywhere due to complications relating to COVID-19.

Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin said at an afternoon news conference that the baby was one of four people from the city who had died of COVID-19.

It isn't known whether or not the child had any underlying health conditions which could have contributed to the death, but what is certain is that Covid-19 is a life-threatener for people of all ages.

China is the only other country that may have seen the death of an infant who tested positive for the disease, though that case is even less definitive.

It was later confirmed the newborn was 7-weeks old.

While Covid-19 deaths among the young have been far rarer than among the elderly and those with co-morbidities, another child died in Belgium around the same time as Mr Abdulwahab in the UK.

Yet more than 60 per cent of those 125 children were aged five and under, while 40 were infants under 12 months old.

If you believe you may have contracted the virus, call your doctor (don't visit) or contact the national Coronavirus Health Information Hotline on 1800 020 080.

Mr Lamont said he believed the baby was one of the youngest victims of the disease.

Of those, just six of them were admitted to hospital, with one of them requiring intensive care.

The United States, which now accounts for nearly a quarter of reported global infections, logged its 5,000th death, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University.

Last week, the revelation of the death from COVID-19 of a person under 18 years old by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) was met with surprise by the medical community on account of data showing the disease mainly spares the young.
