A nine-year-old girl has become the youngest person to die from the corona virus in Florida.

Kimora “Kimmie” Lynum, nine, from Putnam County, Florida, died on July 17 of complications from the corona virus, despite the fact that she had no known health problems.

Lynum, the fifth minor to have died of the coronavirus in Florida, had been taken to hospital due to a high fever, her cousin and family spokesperson Dejeon Cain said, CNN.

Cain said Lynum, an only child, was sent home from the hospital and she collapsed shortly after.

It’s unclear how or when Lynum was exposed to coronavirus because her family said she seemed healthy, didn’t go to school or camp, and spent the summer at home.

Health workers in Putnam County confirmed Lynum’s death on Thursday, indicating that her captured coronavirus was not travel-related, WCJB reported.

Health records revealed that Lynum had not been in close contact with anyone who had coronavirus, either.

Her mother has been tested for the virus, but is still waiting for the results from Saturday.

Cain called Lynum “phenomenal,” saying she was “always happy and made everyone happy.”

The little girl’s death would be “like a double blow,” as Cain said her father was murdered in June.

“It was very difficult, we just buried him and now we bury her. The family is concerned, “said Cain My CBS 4.

A vigil was held on Thursday for Lynum in Gainesville, Florida, with more than 100 masks gathered to release in honor of her balloons.

The Lynum family asks Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to consider opening schools too early, as the state is increasingly plagued by coronavirus.

More than 100 people gathered at the vigil - all wearing masks - then released balloons into her memory. The family said the girl was 'happy' and called her a 'beautiful soul'

As of Saturday, Florida now has more confirmed cases of coronavirus – 414,511 in total – than the former pandemic epicenter in New York State. Florida now ranks second for most virus cases, behind California, according to CNBC.

According to health officials, the number of hospitalizations with coronavirus has increased by 79 percent since July 4.

“The governor must be honest with people, by being unfair, he endangers everyone and we cannot use our children as pawns and send them to die,” said Cain.

“Kimmie was a beautiful soul who couldn’t live her life and if we don’t get control over this, we have more of it in the state,” Cain added.

Putnam County School District inspector Richard Surrency told My CBS 4 that they still plan to reopen schools on August 24.

Surrency mental health people are “ on call ” to Lynum’s teachers and classmates. He also said that the school district has hired more cleaning staff and is more trained to ensure that schools are safe for students to return to.
