A Wisconsin child under the age of 10 has died from COVID-19, the state’s first death resulting from the virus in someone that young, Children’s Wisconsin hospital said Wednesday. Other information regarding the child or when they died was not released, though hospital officials stressed that children should be vaccinated against COVID-19 and receive a flu shot.
There were 12 children hospitalized with COVID-19 at Children’s Wisconsin over the past week. While the kids in our Milwaukee hospital with respiratory illnesses has remained steady, we are expecting to see an increase as the number of kids testing positive for COVID-19 and influenza are increasing in the community.
