CAMDEN, S.C. (WGHP) — A 7-month-old baby tested positive for coronavirus in South Carolina, WIS reports.

The child, named Emmett, had a high fever on Monday and was diagnosed with viral pneumonia.

The child’s mother, Courtney Doster, said her mother also tested positive for coronavirus on Saturday. She said her mother had been around Emmett before she knew she was sick.

Emmett was tested for coronavirus and the test came back positive on Tuesday.

Doster said Emmett is being treated with Tylenol because doctors said ibuprofen and breathing treatments could worsen his symptoms.
