Six Weeks Old Baby Dies From Coronavirus In US
Confirmed coronavirus infections around the world approached one million Thursday as the pandemic spread at a “near-exponential” rate, with a six-week-old baby becoming one of the youngest known victims.
The six-week-old baby was among the latest US fatalities who was taken to a Connecticut hospital late last week.
“Testing confirmed last night that the newborn was COVID-19 positive,” the state’s Governor Ned Lamont tweeted. “This is absolutely heartbreaking.”
World Health Organization head Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the disease’s rapid spread was alarming.
