Officials in Illinois have revealed that a baby that tested positive for Covid-19 has died, the first known death of an infant in the USA with coronavirus.

In news that will reverberate across the nation, and even likely beyond, governor Jay Pritzker revealed that among 13 more deaths reported in the state, were a government employee and a young child.
The development came as the number of infections in the US soared 120,000, and the number of deaths leaped to 2,000. Officials said the cause of death of the youngster was not clear and that an investigation was underway.
