Cause of death to be determined on 6-week-old infant

An investigation is continuing into the cause of death for a 6-week-old infant in Hartford who tested positive for the virus in a postmortem exam.

Dr. James Gill, the state’s chief medical examiner, has said numerous tests will be necessary. He said the baby had no other known medical conditions.

A preliminary police investigation, which is routine for all untimely deaths, included interviews with family members and found no signs of trauma, the Hartford Courant reported.

Lamont announced on Wednesday that the baby had died and tested positive for COVID-19.
