Coronavirus: 45-day-old infant dies in Delhi hospital after testing positive



45-day-old infant died after testing Covid-19 positive at a hospital in New Delhi on Saturday.
The infant, admitted at the Kalawati Saran Children’s hospital, became India’s youngest Covid-19 casualty after she was admitted on April 14. She was tested positive for the virus on April 16.
It is worth noting that a number of infants have tested positive for the deadly virus across the country.
On April 19, news agency PTI reported that an 8-day-old baby tested positive for Covid-19 in Vasai-Virar municipal limits in Maharashtra's Palghar district. The infant was tested positive at VVMC's Juchandra medical facility.
Just a few days ago, a 21-month-old infant from Kolkata tested positive for Covid-19 in the city. The infant is a resident of Uttar Panchanna Gram in south Kolkata.
The infant was immediately shifted to Belaghata ID and BG Hospital from the Institute of Child Health (ICH) after he tested positive.
The fact that so many infants are testing positive for the deadly virus shows that the virus is affecting people from all age groups. As of Sunday, over 15,000 cases have been registered in India with over 500 deaths.
