Baby girl said hospitalized with COVID-19 in serious condition

A 5-month-old baby girl has been hospitalized in serious condition with COVID-19, Channel 13 reports.

The generally healthy infant, whose parents have also been confirmed as carriers of the coronavirus, has been diagnosed with encephalitis and pneumonia, resulting from the virus, the report says.

“We are used to seeing kids diagnosed with COVID-19, but not kids who are ill,” Dr. Idit Pasternak, who treated the baby, tells Channel 13. “Usually, kids who arrive with COVID-19 are generally healthy. We don’t see a lot of cases like this girl.”

The report does not mention in what hospital the infant is hospitalized.
