6 Week Old Covid-19 Victim Dies

 

Excerpt from:  wtnh.com/news/health/coronavirus/6-week-old-baby-dies-of-coronavirus-in-hartford/

 

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A newborn baby from Hartford has become Connecticut’s first infant coronavirus-related death.

 

On Wednesday, Governor Ned Lamont said the unresponsive newborn, who was just under 7-weeks-old, was taken to the hospital late last week and could not be revived.

 

The child was then tested for COVID-19, and on Tuesday night, officials received the positive results.

 

“This is absolutely heartbreaking,” Lamont said in a tweet. “We believe this is one of the youngest lives lost anywhere due to complications relating to COVID-19.”

It is with heartbreaking sadness today that we can confirm the first pediatric fatality in Connecticut linked to #COVID19. A 6-week-old newborn from the Hartford area was brought unresponsive to a hospital late last week and could not be revived. (1/3)

I have a new grandchild who must have been born around the same date as this Cherub.

 

This was a real heart stopper for me.

That is heartbreaking. I have a friend in France whose baby was born in mid-December instead of early March. He weighed only 1 1/2 pounds. Amazingly, he did very well and was sent home after several weeks, when he weighed close to six pounds. The last I heard, though, is that the baby's doctors canceled his appointments when the coronavirus erupted. Charly, my friend, told me the doctörs told him they'd be on their own for quite awhile. I pray the baby will be all right.
