Eighty-five infants under age 1 have tested positive for coronavirus in one Texas county since mid-March. In Nueces County number of new coronavirus cases skyrocketed in July after a flattening trend. The virus has infected dozens of babies and local officials are urging people to practice caution. The spokespersons are using the statistic to illustrate that no one is naturally immune to this virus.
One child younger than age 1 has died. The child was taken to a hospital with unrelated symptoms and tested positive for Covid-19, then died at home. An autopsy is being conducted to determine the cause of death, she said.
