This is incredibly sad.

An infant in Illinois under the age of one has died after testing positive for coronavirus.

‘There has never been a case of COVID-19 death in an infant,’ said Illinois Public Health Director, Dr Ngozi Ezike.

‘If you haven’t been paying attention, maybe this is your wake-up call, Ezike said.

The child was among 13 new deaths recorded in Illinois, which now has a coronavirus death toll of 47.

So now it is not only teenagers but even infants that can be killed by this virus. 

I have to admit that I now feel rather stupid for telling the younger people that I work with not to worry about dying from this disease, because I was very likely giving them a false sense of security. 

Don’t get me wrong I still hammered home the message about staying inside and washing their hands, but I also tried to reassure them that they would ultimately be fine. 

Clearly that is not necessarily true.
