On April 5, a 14-month-old baby boy was tested positive for coronavirus in Gujarat’s Jamnagar district. Unfortunately, the baby died on 7 April evening after suffering from multiple organ failure. Moreover, the baby and his parents who are a migrant labourer-couple have no traveling history.
The health official release read that the baby boy died at a government hospital in Jamnagar. Ever since he was admitted in the hospital, the boyâ€™s condition was extremely critical and lived on ventilator support for two days.
Eventually, the 14-month-old died due to multiple organ failure and becomes the youngest patient to succumb to COVID-19 in Gujarat. With this case, the death toll has risen to 16 in the state.
It is said that the authorities had tried tracing the source of his infection but failed. His parents are from Uttar Pradesh who work as labourers in factories. Currently, Gujarat has 175 positive coronavirus cases.
