The new coronavirus had led to the deaths of at least 99 people in IL out of more than 5,994 infections.

An infant in IL who tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) has died, the state's Department of Public Health said in a statement on Saturday.

On Saturday, IDPH announced the first death of an infant with COVID-19.

Ezike said an investigation is underway to determine the cause of death, since nothing of such has been recorded before now.

Officials didn't release other information about the infant, who was from Cook County, which includes Chicago, including whether the child had other health issues.

An Illinois infant diagnosed with COVID-19 may be the first United States baby killed by the pandemic, though the cause of death is unknown, according to a local report.

Older adults are at higher risk of severe illness, and more than 85 percent of deaths in IL are among individuals 60 years of age and older. The infant had a bowel blockage and organ failure, and died four weeks after being hospitalised.
