The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) on Saturday, March 28, 2020 reported the death of an infant younger than one year in Chicago who tested positive for coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

According to said IDPH Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike, “There has never before been a death associated with COVID-19 in an infant. A full investigation is underway to determine the cause of death.”

Older adults are at higher risk of severe illness, and more than 85% of deaths in Illinois are among individuals 60 years of age and older. However, people of all ages are suffering severe illness.

“We must do everything we can to prevent the spread of this deadly virus. If not to protect ourselves, but to protect those around us.”
