The newborn suffered from heart problems, which were amplified by the virus. A first Covid-19 test was negative, but a second, four days later, was positive.
A 12-day-old Palestinian baby boy born with a heart condition died of coronavirus, the Palestinian Health Ministry said Tuesday. The baby is said to have contracted the virus after birth. The Ministry of Health is investigating how the baby contracted the virus.
