The death of a 13-day-old baby has become the second youngest death in coronavirus infection in the UK.

The UK's National Health Service reported the baby's death on Thursday, according to BBC’s news. The child had no underlying health conditions.

Earlier, a 3-day old baby named Coolio Carl Justin Morgan had died of coronavirus in a hospital in Bridgend, South Wales. 

In a statement, Sheffield Children's Hospital said: "Sadly on Monday, June 15, a child passed away... having been brought in to the hospital in a critical condition. Attempts at resuscitation were unsuccessful.

"The cause of death is not yet known. Tests have confirmed that the child had Covid-19, but it isn't yet clear if it was a contributing factor."
