A four-month-old baby girl, suffering from congenital heart disease, tested positive for COVID-19 and died at Kozhikode Medical College in Kerala on Friday at around 6am after suffering from cardiac arrest.
The baby girl was struggling with heart issues from birth and was under treatment. She developed pneumonia and then tested positive for Covid-19.
The girl hailed from Payyanad at Manjeri in Malappuram District of Kerala.She was admitted to the hospital on April 21 with symptoms like breathing difficulties, fever, cough and seizure, the doctors said.
Although the parents don’t have travel history but had visited hospitals several times since January for their daughter’s treatment.There seems a very high possibility that the girl came in contact with some Covid-19 patient during such visits and her parents might as well be infected.
Samples of her parents have been collected for testing.
