The corona virus hurts the youngest again. Chicago (USA) recorded the death of a baby of less than a year on this Saturday, the second known victim in this age group and the first with no previous pathologies. A strange case, as the disease was “rarely fatal” in those years, as the governor of Illinois, the state in which the city is located, acknowledged, J.B. Pritzker.
“I know how difficult it is to communicate this news, especially because of the loss of such a young life. When I became aware of the case, I started to tremble and it is now appropriate for anyone who feels this pain. “Assured Pritzker in statements from La Vanguardia.
“We have never had a baby-related Covid-19 death,” said Ngozi Ezike, director of the Illinois Department of Public Health, on NBC, who also announced an investigation to clarify the cause of the tragedy.
After the event, CNN recalled that an age-old baby died in China, although in his case with previous pathologies, and there were also positive events in babies in the states of Tennessee and Florida, although there was currently no regret for their death. The United States now has 124,665 cases and 2,191 coronavirus deaths, 3,500 of them in Illinois.
