State health leaders confirmed only that the latest child victim is an infant less than a year old. With this latest death, Mississippi’s COVID-19 pediatric death toll for the past six weeks is now four, exceeding the first 17 months of the pandemic when three Mississippians younger than 18 died of COVID-19.
