Why Infant Also Died Cause Of COVID -19 ?

An infant in Illinois who tested positive for COVID -19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, has died, the state's governor said in a press conference.

This also marks the first recorded in the United States of an infant who contracted the Virus Pandemic of COVID -19. A full investigation is underway to determine the baby'2 cause of death, said Illinois Department of Public Health director Dr. Ngozi Ezike.

" Now is a really hard day. I'm reporting the tragedic death of an infant, " Ezike said.

In another press conference announced, Dr. Ezike said the investigation into the 9-month-old's death is still ongoing.

" The investigation is still very fresh. We're still trying to gather the data as we're speaking, " Dr. Ezike said. " We know that this is very top-of-mind for people and we want to allow the appropriate processes to take place so we can give the best information to audience. "

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker also announced that the death is a rare occurrence, according to scientific papers or journals.

" I would remind here, all parents out there that this is highly uncommon." " That isn't to say that every infant is safe...but this is not something we should hear a lot more of because it doesn't happen often at all."

Among the dead already reported, was a state employee from the Department of Human Resources. 

" The age of cases ranges from younger than one to 99 years, " a news release from IDPH.

" I know how difficult this news can be, especially about this very young child, " Pritzker says. " Upon hearing it, I admit I was immediately shaken, and it's appropriate for any of us to grieve today."

Illinois implemented a stay-at-home order. The state has been working to procure essential medical equipment for front-line-workers and amp up tis testing capabilities.

"We want everyone in Illinois to take COVID -19 seriously, " Ezike said. " If you haven't been paying attention, maybe this is your wake-up call."

Although the virus is more likely to cause deaths in adults children who tested positive for COVID-19 have also died. Infant death has been an especially rare occurrence, but according to the New England Journal of Medicine at least one 10-month-old infant in Wuhan died in a hospital after being diagnosed.

" We should grieve, " Pritzker said. " We should grieve with our family of the state employees. With the many people already lost to this virus, young and also old. We should grieve for the loss of a sense of normalcy we left behind just a few days ago or today. It's OK today to grieve."
