Covid-19: 1year old baby allegedly suffocates to death after prolonged use of face mask

An infant has reportedly suffocated to death due to the prolonged use of Facemask. Taking to Twitter, user The_Ronkee, questioned why anyone would wear a face mask for a baby, as she claimed the baby lost its life moments after.

Many users were left in shock by the claims, as they questioned why someone would wear a mask for a baby.

“How do you wear face mask for a year old baby? Now baby don die”

People have been warned against wearing a face mask for babies under the age of 2. Both the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) advise against mask-wearing in individuals under age two years.

If a mask is too tight, an infant or toddler may not be able to vocalize breathing difficulties.

If an infant falls asleep while wearing a mask, they can, indeed, suffocate in a manner very similar to what happens to a baby suffering from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS.
