A 13-year-old swimmer in Claremont, Calif. died last Thursday after experiencing COVID-19 symptoms since July 4,Â CBSLA reported.Â The boy,Â Maxx Cheng, swam for Mt. Baldy Aquatics.
He reportedly tested negative for the virus about a week before his death but continued to quarantine in his room.
â€œNausea, vomiting, chest pains,â€ his sister Charlotte told CBSLA. â€œThat list that pops up, a little bit, on that initial search, he had all of those symptoms.â€ An autopsy to determine cause of death, including whether Maxx had COVID-19, is expected in the near future.
Maxxâ€™s symptoms seemed to improve last week, according to his sister. â€œThere was almost no cough,â€ Charlotte said. â€œThe fever had gone down three days before he passed.â€
