A six week old baby is believed to be the world’s youngest victim of coronavirus.

The very tragic news came after the baby tested positive for coronavirus.

The baby was rushed to hospital unresponsive last week and sadly could not be revived.

The death was announced by Connecticut Gov Ned Lamont.

He did not provide further details.

He tweeted “It is with heartbreaking sadness today we can confirm the first pediatric fatality in Connecticut linked to Covid-19.

“A 6-week-old newborn from the Hartford area was brought unresponsive to a hospital late last week and could not be revived.”

‘Testing confirmed last night that the newborn was COVID-19 positive.

‘This is absolutely heartbreaking. We believe this is one of the youngest lives lost anywhere due to complications relating to COVID-19.

‘This is a virus that attacks our most fragile without mercy. This also stresses the importance of staying home and limiting exposure to other people.

‘Your life and the lives of others could literally depend on it. Our prayers are with the family at this difficult time,’

 

Connecticut has 3,128 cases and 69 deaths as a result of coronavirus.

It is not yet clear if the baby suffered any underlying health conditions.
