Prior to Sunday, the youngest known fatality in Georgia linked to the disease was a 22-year-old woman from Muscogee County in West Georgia.
Children typically have mild symptoms of COVID-19 or may not have symptoms at all. In recent weeks, state health officials have warned about an inflammatory condition in children that is suspected to be linked to the coronavirus.
Last week, DPH said nine children had been confirmed to have MIS-C, or Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children.
Nydam said in an email that DPH had not confirmed any deaths from MIS-C in Georgia to date.
The symptoms include prolonged fever, lasting four or more days; very red eyes; a rash spread across the body; reddening or peeling on palms and soles of feet; abdominal pain; and vomiting or diarrhea.
