Local Newborn Could Be Among Youngest Victims Of COVID-19

A newborn baby who died in Berks County over the weekend may be one of the youngest victims of COVID-19. The 26-day-old girl died shortly after being admitted to Reading Hospital Sunday, according to the coroner. An autopsy on the baby was done Monday, at which time a COVID-19 test was also performed. The coroner's office said it received the positive test results Thursday afternoon. Acting Coroner Jonn Hollenbach said it can't be determined with medical certainty whether the coronavirus played a role in the baby's death until additional results are received.
