A one-month old baby is among the approximately 1,400 COVID-19 cases in Maryland.

According to the New York Post, the baby is the fourth known case in the state of someone under the age of 18 to be positive for coronavirus, following a 10-month-old infant, a 5-year-old girl and a teenager.

“We now have 1,413 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our state, including our youngest case to date — a one-month-old infant,” Maryland Governor Larry Hogan said at a press conference.
