A nine-month-old child from Clay County — the Moorhead area — has died from COVID-19 — one of the youngest deaths reported in the U-S so far. Minnesota Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm:
“Our sympathies very much go out to the family, and any COVID-related death is a loss of course, and a death involving such a young person is tragic and certainly very unusual.”
State officials have asked the Centers for Disease Control to do additional analysis. State Health Department’s Kris Ehresmann (AIRZ-man) says any information on the course of the infant’s illness will be added to the broader understanding of infant deaths across the country.
