Kimora Lynum, youngest person to die from COVID-19 in Florida

Putnam County, FL — Kimora “Kimmie” Lynum, a 9-year old African American girl, has been reported as the youngest person in Florida to have died from COVID-19 so far.

Lynum was taken to the hospital when she started feeling sick and had a high fever. She tested positive for coronavirus but was sent home. She collapsed and sadly died shortly after.

It has yet been confirmed how or when Lynum got infected. Her family said she did not have any underlying health conditions and she did not travel recently. She spent her days at home and did not attend school or summer camp.

Lynum had no close contact with anyone who tested positive of the COVID-19 as well, official state health department records show.

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help with Lynum’s funeral expenses and it has so far raised more than $25,000.
