State Sees First COVID Related Death of a Child Under the Age of 10

Thursday, December 23rd, 2021 -- 3:01 PM

(Bill Wise, WRN) The state Department of Health Services has reported the first COVID-19 related death of a child under the age of 10.

DHS would  not provide any more details or an ID on the Tuesday death because of privacy reasons. Doctors say this should urge parents to get their child and everyone else in the family vaccinated, as omicron is spreading rapidly in the state.

Milwaukee County remains in the extreme transmission category for COVID-19. The county is seeing an average of 472 cases a day and 6 deaths a day.  Doctors predict most of the new cases are now omicron.
