Doctors from the Polanki Children’s Hospital in Gdańsk are fighting for the life of a 10-year-old who lies unconscious under a respirator after contracting the coronavirus. – This is the first such a severe case of COVID-19 in Pomerania at such a young age – according to the hospital authorities.
As the spokesman of the Children’s Hospital of Polanki im. Maciej Płażyński, Jarosław Cejrowski, the child was brought to this facility on Thursday from the hospital in Starogard Gdański. – A 10-year-old boy is unconscious. He’s under a respirator. He has COVID-19 and has comorbidities. He is in the intensive care unit. The child’s condition is serious – said Cejrowski.
The information about the 10-year-old in the hospital in Gdańsk was provided by “Dziennik Bałtycki”.
– The boy has severe pneumonia due to infection. The boy’s condition has not changed since the reception. This is the first such severe case of COVID-19 in Pomerania at such a young age – said the hospital spokesman.
Doctors do not want to speculate on the boy’s prognosis. – We are appealing for vaccinating children from the age of five who will start soon. Only vaccinations are an effective method of defense against infection, added a spokesman for the Children’s Hospital of Polanki im. Maciej Płażyński.
