Three kids put in ICU


THREE children under 13 – including an infant – are among 175 NSW Covid patients in intensive care.

NSW Health confirmed on Sunday that a baby, a nineyear-old and a 12-yearold were admitted to the ICU as a result of their Covid diagnosis.

All of the children have underlying health conditions.

Health officer Jeremy McAnulty said the three children in ICU were “in context” of about 2000 people being cared for by the Children’s Hospital network.

NSW reported 1485 new Covid cases on Sunday and three deaths.
