It isn’t straightforward for Crue to get the virus as a result of he’s “one of many happiest 13-month olds you may ever see,” however his mother advised USA TODAY that the virus is very harmful for him.

Crue was born a bit of early and has Down syndrome. His lungs aren’t large enough, and he is had open-heart surgical procedure. All of this stuff, and the truth that he’s too younger to get a vaccine, make Crue extra more likely to get sick from the coronavirus.

Due to the pandemic, Crosby mentioned her household did every thing they may to avoid COVID-19 after her son was born. They did not see their household, ordered groceries to the home, and stayed inside more often than not.

“We let it cease us from residing our lives,” she mentioned.

However on December 9, after her son began having chilly signs, she took Crue to get checked out. Crue went to the hospital 5 days after he came upon he had HIV.
