A six-week-old baby has died from the coronavirus in Connecticut, the state governor confirmed.
Governor Ned Lamont said the newborn died from complications that came from the novel virus, making it the state's first paediatric death.
"This is a virus that attacks our most fragile without mercy," Mr Lamont tweeted on Wednesday. "This also stresses the importance of staying home and limiting exposure to other people. Your life and the lives of others could literally depend on it. Our prayers are with the family at this difficult time."
