Coronavirus: 13-day-old baby becomes one of UK’s youngest victims

A 13-day-old baby has become one of the youngest people to die with coronavirus in the UK.

The child had no underlying health conditions.

The youngster’s death comes as it was announced a further 135 people who tested positive for COVID-19 had lost their lives.

It brings the total fatalities in all settings in the UK, including hospitals, care homes and the wider community, to 42,288.

There have been 67 further deaths in hospitals in England, while Wales has reported three new fatalities and Scotland one.

But there are thought to be thousands more people who died with coronavirus but who had not been tested.

Children seem to be much less likely to suffer the most severe effects of the disease.

But it has still claimed the lives of at least 20 people under the age of 20.

In March, 13-year-old Ismail Mohamed Abdulwahab, who had no pre-existing health conditions, died with COVID-19 in hospital.
