5-Year-Old Michigan Girl Dies Of Coronavirus

A five-year-old Michigan girl, Skylar Herbert, complained to her parents of a headache a month ago and later diagnosed with coronavirus in March. She died after spending two weeks on a ventilator.

When she tested positive for coronavirus she developed a rare form of meningitis and brain swelling. Her doctors said that she was possibly brain dead and had stopped improvement.

Skylar’s mother LaVondria said that ‘we knew she wasn’t coming back to us’. It is believed that she was the first child who died from coronavirus in Michigan.

Her parents revealed that they had no idea where she caught the coronavirus and she had has no underlying health issues. They said that she admitted to the hospital on April 3.

She developed meningoencephalitis which a rare complication of coronavirus. Meningoencephalitis is basically the inflammation of the brain and its sorrounding protective membrane.

Initially, she didn’t develop the symptoms of coronavirus. She cried all night and said she had a headache. When her parents took her to the doctor on March 23, she was sent home with antibiotics.

LaVondria said that she had been crying all night because of a headache. When we called the doctor they told us it took 48 hours for medicines to show its effect.

But her condition deteriorated and they took her to the Beaumont Royal Oak where she diagnosed with the novel coronavirus. She was discharged from the hospital.

Skylar’s mother said that her husband suffered from coughing and shortness of breath and they returned to hospital. She said: “Me and Skylar waited in the car, but out of nowhere, Skylar began complaining about her head hurting again and then she just threw up.”

LaVondria wrapped her in the blanket when her temperature reached 100 degrees. She had seizure. Her family then took her to the pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
