‘Overjoyed to announce the arrival of Branson Von, on 3/20/20,’ the new mom tweeted. ‘In the midst of trying times where extreme caution is necessary, we’re so thankful to @NorthsideHosp for allowing us to get creative so my mom could meet her 1st grandson. #COVID19 #QuaratineLife #newborn #coronavirus.’

Not only are the images endearing, but they are also a reminder of the lengths people need to go to keep their older relatives and babies safe from the novel virus. 

Earlier this week, a three-week-old infant in New York was identified as the youngest patient in the U.S. to test positive for coronavirus. 

Worldwide, the youngest confirmed case was a newborn baby in China who tested positive for coronavirus just 30 hours after birth. 

Experts say that it serves as a reminder that children are not immune to coronavirus, warning parents to be on guard to protect their kids from potential exposure. 

However, while some children and infants have been infected with coronavirus, adults make up most of the known cases to date, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
