Mercy staff report 1-year-old hospitalized with COVID-19
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - Mercy staff reported Wednesday a one-year-old child is hospitalized with the COVID-19 virus.
Eric Frederick, Chief Administration Officer, shared the news on Twitter. Staff reported 96 hospitalizations from COVID-19 on Wednesday.
The state of Missouri leads the nation with the highest rate of new COVID-19 infections, and the surge is happening largely in a politically conservative farming region in the northern part of the state and in the southwestern corner. While over 53% of all Americans have received at least one shot, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, most southern and northern Missouri counties are well short of 40%. One county is at just 13%.
