Young Child in Georgia Left With Mother’s Dead Body for Over 12 Hours After She Died of Coronavirus

The body of a coronavirus-stricken Georgia health care worker was found in her home with her young child more than 12 hours after she died of the illness, according to a report.

The 42-year-old woman, who wasn’t identified, was likely dead for 12 to 16 hours before she was discovered during a welfare check Thursday at her Coweta County home, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Her child, who is 4 or 5 years old, was in the home at the time, the report said.

Coweta County Coroner Richard Hawk said tests following her death confirmed that she had the infectious virus. It is unclear if the child has also now been sickened.
