Coronavirus, a 6-week-old infant is the first pediatric victim of Covid-19 in the United States

April 09, 2020 • By Alison Forde

A 6-week-old baby died of complications from the new Coronavirus; the boy lived in Hartford, Connecticut, and had been rushed to hospital because he had severe breathing problems; However, the rush to the hospital was for nothing, as the child lost his life in not responding to emergency care. At only 6 weeks old, Hartford's baby is the youngest victim from Covid-19 in the United States.

Ned Lamont, the governor of the federal state of Connecticut, gave the terrible news and said on Twitter: "This is absolutely heartbreaking. We believe this is one of the youngest lives lost due to complications related to Covid-19 [...] This is a virus that attacks our most fragile without mercy, this also underlines the importance of staying at home and limiting exposure to other people. Your life and the life of others could literally depend on it. Our prayers are with the family in this difficult time. "

Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin also confirmed the news when he announced that four other people in the community had died on Wednesday from Covid-19. At the moment, the 6-week-old newborn is the first pediatric coronavirus victim in the United States of America.
