Baby boy and 2-year-old girl test positive for coronavirus in Florida

The baby boy, who was listed by the health department as less than a year old, marks the youngest reported case of COVID-19 in the state, according to the Miami Herald.

Health officials did not say whether the boy or girl had been in contact with someone who tested positive.

4. Much easier to catch it from somebody you spend more time with.

The kid who died in California got it from his parent(s).

6. Damn it

Kids spread germs better than anyone else. It's very bad if kids can get it. That's why many places have closed schools and day cares.
