Α 37-day-old baby infected with Covid-19 passed away on Monday. The youngest fatality in Greece was struggling for life intubated in Children’s Hospital Aglaia Kyriakou in Athens since February 17.
Despite doctors’ efforts it didn’t make it and his health was deteriorating day by day.
The boy had no underlying health issues.
The baby contracted the coronavirus a few days after his birth and developed severe symptoms like acute breathing difficulties and pneumonia caused by Covid-19.
According to state broadcaster ERT, the baby’s parents and his older siblings were infected with the coronavirus.
Last week, Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias made a reference to the little boy. During a live briefing, he expressed the wish that the baby gets well soon.
