LOS ANGELES COUNTY, Calif. – A person under the age of 18 has died from COVID-19 in Los Angeles County in California, becoming one of the youngest victims of the new coronavirus in the United States.
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health announced the juvenile’s death on Tuesday, saying that it was one of three new deaths in the county from COVID-19.
“Tragically, one of the people who died was a person under the age of 18, a devastating reminder that COVID-19 infects people of all ages,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, L.A. County Public Health Director.

Four more people, including a minor, have died of COVID-19 in Los Angeles County, officials announced Tuesday. That brings the total of deadly coronavirus cases in the county to 11.
The L.A. County Department of Public Health only described the child who died as a Lancaster resident who lived in Lancaster.
