The COVID-19 pandemic is still very much I’m existence, and America alone, has recorded a little over a million cases.
Unfortunately, just like I’m other nations of the world, it has been been contained yet in the US, and deaths have been recorded as well.
A recent COVID death in the US, is one of 9 year-old girl from Putnam County, who is now the youngest person to have died in the state of Florida from coronavirus complications, according to the state department of health.
Records show that the child, however, did not have close contact with anyone who recently tested positive for Covid-19, and according to Putnam County Health Officer Mary Garcia, the little girl had no underlying medical conditions.
She is now the fifth, albeit, youngest minor in Florida to die from COvID.
The others were an 11-year-old boy in Miami-Dade County, an 11-year-old girl in Broward County, a 16-year-old girl in Lee County and a 17-year-old boy in Pasco County.
So far, about 23,170 minors have tested positive for the virus across the state of Florida. The positivity rate of the children tested is 13.4%. The state’s total number of confirmed cases stands at 379,619
