Mexico City – Mexico novelCases increased and added their younger infections on Monday, when the triplets tested positive for the virus the day they were born. Monica Rangel, secretary of health for the northern state of San Luis Potosí, said the triplets were born on May 8 to a mother who was also positive but asymptomatic.
Rangel said the triplets were not believed to be in danger. She said the case was being studied to see if the triplets were infected before or after birth, but said it seemed unlikely that they could have been infected outside the uterus so quickly.
It’s not the first timeBut it is rare. Children statistically experience far fewer symptoms of COVID-19 infection than adults, and the impact on human health appears to increase with age.
Nationally, confirmed cases of coronavirus in Mexico increased from 4,577 to 185,122, and the number of confirmed deaths increased from 759 to 22,584.
Both figures are considered significant subaccounts due to the very low levels of testing in Mexico. Authorities said infection levels appear to have stabilized, and they hoped, as they have many times before, that the numbers may start to drop soon.
